For a long time this test was marked "never passed". However I recently
added osstest support for using the ACPI shutdown method against certain
guests when configured to do so and configured win7.

However it is starting to look like the ACPI shutdown method is
unreliable, since this now seems to be failing intermittently. I haven't
had a chance to analyse it yet, but it seems like it might also be
specific to Windows 7.

In this case, as with the other one I looked at earlier in the week, the
guest vnc screenshot shows no sign that it is considering shutting down.

Correct, this is a long standing heisenbug. I recently increased the
number of iterations used in this test to (hopefully) reduce the
incidences of false passes.

I would force push any flight which failed only this case.

osstest zips logs over some size threshold. I'm not sure what would be
responsible for the other one -- perhaps either logrotate on the
original host or something in the webserver giving out the logs?

I think so (and more evidence that it is win7 only).
