 Replying to [comment:3 boonebgorges]:
 > Could I get some more details on how to reproduce? It seems as if the
 issue being reported by @xoogu in the support forums is somewhat different
 from what's being proposed by @utkarshpatel.

 The issue I was having was when installing a plugin as part of the initial
 setup for testing. (The plugin install was called from setUpBeforeClass of
 my test). If the plugin couldn't be installed, then wp_die was called with
 a WP_Error object passed to it.

 (I realise requiring another plugin to be installed rather than just
 mocking it isn't actually unit testing, but that's just how I like to do
 my tests).
