This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 26 development cycle.
Changing version to '26'.

Comment 5 Felix Schwarz 2017-07-08 12:10:15 UTC
This really bugs me: I get regular koschei notifications. It seems like the build (more precisely: "the test suite") is a bit flaky on armv7hl. 

The problem is always
  40/168 Test  #40: other_collector_external_operator..................***Failed

The most problematic thing is that the test sometimes passes (even on armv7hl):
fail (June 2017):
pass (May 2017):

Not sure how we should tackle this best. PySide 1.x (and shiboken) are mostly unmaintained. A PySide developer from the QT company mentioned to me that PySide 2 contains fewer bugs than 1.x even though there is not even a beta release. Also switching to PySide 2 means users must switch to QT 5 which might not be so easy.

As the arm platform seems to be a bit problematic for shiboken/PySide and I never read a bug report about ARM-specific bugs I tend to either just disable tests for PySide on ARM. However this means we basically pretend everything should be working on ARM (which I did not test at all) so the more honest thing might be to remove PySide/shiboken from Fedora on ARM...

I guess I'll take one more stab at fixing the test and if I fail I'll just go ahead fixing the build - even if this means no PySide on ARM.

Ah, our friends at Debian found the root cause (integer overflow) in I was able to apply that patch successfully for F26+F27 and push it this weekend.
