Use the test system ;-)
I attach a minimal test case which verifies that 'print.text' produces
expected result on the first run. I think you can tweak it to check that
overriting really happens.

I'm not sure this should make into regression suite, but in general, tests are
good. We even have docs, in test/test_system.html.
