Now I remember what the issue was: I expected that putting the star in
there would allow me to set up the message that would be presented
*when* there were a failure but that it wouldn't cause the report to
say that I expect a failure everywhere. When I expect a failure
everywhere, I use an expected-fail test (e.g. compile-fail). Is there
really any use for the current behavior?
