OK, I'll admit I've never tried that (I haven't had the time and/or will 
to look into it further than just "darn, doesn't work - oh well..".

And, as I pointed out, you don't have any of my machines. Of course the 
testsuite does not test everything, but I would be surprised if it doesn't 
test anything at all.

But hey, if you don't think it'll be useful, I won't insist :)


BTW: I will run the testsuite against the latest snapshot and see if I get 
any regressions, of course - I'll let you know :p
