The smoke tests run at revision 40093 still were showing a lot of
failures. The new tests are running now.

The expectation is that changes to a foundation library like test that
is part of our testing infrastructure will be very well tested before
they are committed to the trunk.

We need to do a postmortem to figure out why your testing didn't
determine that there was a problem before you did a commit.

What tests did you run?

On what platform?

Did you add a new test to detect whatever failed?

What other steps can we take in the future to prevent this wholesale
breakage from happening again?

Yes, I found it very discouraging too.
