No idea.  Have you tried running a clean devel branch through EC2?
Maybe it's a timing issue like below.

You've probably realized this: the above looks like a timing issue.  The
time between performing the action and rendering the "ago" string is
longer than expected.

I'd change the test to assert that "ago by Person-name-862285" is in the
string rather that the exact match given.
