The current situation is much better than what it looks like from the
latest reports. Yesterday's tests from Anthony
(JustSoftwareSolutions-debug) lack proper Spirit 1.6 setup, but show the
positive effect of Volodya's latest Borland patch; the monday tests from
Roland (speedsnail-dbg) lack Volodya's patch, but show the positive
effect of correctly setting Spirit 1.6 for Borland.

Once we manage to get a set of tests with both effects combined there
should only be very many tests still failing which shall probably be
marked expected.
