> how to proceed? It would be nice to solve this one before announcing RC3

As written in the README:

```
This test is here to verify the test tools integration with your board and test setup.

It verify the assumptions required for testing on the board behaviour through make term.
```

(Almost) All tests are using pyterm and if we change pyterm for socat then it means that we don't test the same terminal tools that is used by those tests. I don't like the fix proposed by this PR.
You are running python 3.9 on Arch, which is different from the version available in Ubuntu 20.10 (3.8). So it might be a problem in pyterm with your Python version. If it's very important for you, better fix the real problem than providing a quick workaround fix (that might live longer than you think).
