I looked at my log and that test should indeed pass. Is it possible
that you are out of disk space when running the test?
It looks like the test script is tcl in
with old_prefix.exp as an argument. You might want to research the
output commands for tcl and insert some debugging statements into
old_prefix.exp to see if the db is really being created. I'd just do
'exec ls -lR tmp/' before and after the locate_start command to see what
is going on.
