Maybe it should be marked up as "expected failure" or something,
then. Currently the RC-1.34 summary at
shows it as a red "Broken" box, yet it's not on the regression notification

There's a few others like that, too.

All these are from the tests I ran yesterday; I haven't cross-checked to see
if there are similar cases from other people's test runs.

The important thing from my point of view is that the regression report
doesn't replicate the summary page. This means that people won't be
investigating potentially broken things.

Secondly, the results from my regression runs don't seem to tally with those
from RudbekAssociates-V2, despite my having a reasonably standard installation
of MSVC7.1 and MSVC8.0Express on Windows 2000. What's up with that.
