Somehow Python issue 23458[1] has resurfaced on my development machine.
Submitting this issue for tracking and xfail.

>From ktrace, /dev/random (via symlink) is opened by lldb and inherited by the
test case:

Comment # 1 on bug 23983 from emaste@freebsd.org

The underlying Python issue was not fixed - there was just an incorrect
decorator (Flakey vs Fail) on a newly added test. Updated in:

Sending        test/functionalities/avoids-fd-leak/TestFdLeak.py
Transmitting file data .
Committed revision 240958.

This should be fixed in Python 2.7.10 for at least some operating systems.
