I was going to ask about this when I thought I'd isolated the problem.
I'm working in the tests and have recently noticed that these two tests,
[ test-bsl-run_files test_class_info_save ]
[ test-bsl-run_files test_class_info_load ]
sometimes don't appear to obey these,
DEPENDS test_class_info_load_text_archive.run : test_class_info_save_text_archive.run ;
It seems that there is different behaviour on different machines.
Rebuilding from scratch just now made the problem go away, but of
course I'd rather isolate it than let it jump me again later... I'm
going to soon be offering up a conversion to unit tests and hooks for
portability testing. Is it OK to leave it like that, have I created
some unrelated problem, should I chase this down, or what?
Thanks in advance,
