Ah! It was implemented before we allowed duplicate test names.

Will fix.

Seems like this is really two features:

A) Note applies only if test fails.

B) Note applies regardless of toolset.

These features are not mutually exclusive; either or both can apply.

I'll implement all of the above later today. They will require format
changes to the map file, but that shouldn't be a problem.
