I wondered why the point 2 in test_system.html describing run_build_system
didn't work. It says "Changes to subdir, if it is specified. If it is not
absolute path, it is relative to the working dir."

After peeking into the source code this small patches allowed me to test
scripts directly in their directory without having to create a temporary

Otherwise the test_system is very good for my needs and my tests begin to
consume hours of CPU time, but I am happy with it as the most decisive tests
are run at the beginning and the rest gives me the confidence that our whole
build infrastructure works as it should. Thanks a lot.
