## Observation
When running a single perl test (or a series of tests), following the steps described in, the tests run as expected, but afterwards encounters the following error and exits:

## Steps to reproduce
- Navigate to your *build folder* for os-autoinst (i.e. where you ran `cmake`) `/var/lib/openqa/tests/os-autoinst-distri-opensuse/os-autoinst`
- run `make test-perl-testsuite TESTS="17-basetest.t`, replacing `17-basetest.t` with any single test or group of tests contained in the `t/` directory

## Problem
H1. The problem seems to persist regardless of the test the user tries to run
H2. In the case of multiple tests, after all tests have completed, the error refers to the first test listed by the user in the `make test-perl-testsuite TESTS="test1, test2 ... testN"` command and exits

## Suggestion
Since this problem is unlikely to have existed for long without anyone noticing, it is probably a regression. Locating a commit that caused this behaviour could be a good start.

## Workaround
Running the tests will still produce all expected results, so no special action is needed
