`dash` and `ash` are very similar, this is unlikely to be the cause.

I am pretty certain that tbot is waiting for a password prompt.  Can you
check that you have set `password = None` in your board linux config?

Skip does not really make sense in tbot's design, where other testcases
might depend on one testcase's return value.  If you want to skip, do it
