[sporadic] OBS checks fail os-autoinst test "Calling 'isotovideo --help' returns exit code 0" from t/44-scripts.t but only on aarch64? 

 ## Observation 

 From https://build.opensuse.org/package/live_build_log/devel:openQA/os-autoinst/openSUSE_Tumbleweed/aarch64 

 ```

 ``` 

 Seems to happen a lot lately but only on aarch64 and apparently not all the time, currently green at time of writing. 
 Exit code 31744 >> 8 = 124, meaning "command terminated by SIGTERM". Maybe a race condition due to multiple background processes – which we shouldn't even spawn when we just want to call "--help" – which only really shows up on aarch64 as it's slower. 

 ## Suggestions 
 * For now exclude the test from OBS checks on aarch64 
 * Check the "--help" route, and see what else might be running in the background 
 * Fix the problem 

 ## Rollback steps 
 * Enable test on OBS checks again
