Ive tried several things and our testers do not seem to run correctly under the new run.py, no idea why as yet. Could I ask that you please not remove the old stuff until we get this issue resolved?
Alright, Ive found the source of our problem with the new run.py script. For whatever reason, PJL was being built only once, rather than once per tester. I guess this is because I used to run testers with a completely clean test directory so PJL was built each time a tester ran. With the new run.py script, it was finding a previously built PJL but was unable to locate the dependent shared libraries due to an overwritten LD_LIB path.
So Rene, I think you can safely remove the outdated regression testing code, thanks for giving me a chance to track this down.
