Hi Martin

My point was not to emphasize the test failures but rather to share the 
techniques required to get the tests to run, which I thought might be of 
interest to other users.  Unfortunately, my two additional posts which contain 
the detail results and the code are being held by the mailserver pending 
moderator approval to exceed 40K.  Especially in the absence of these posts, it 
may appear that I am being critical, which is not the case at all.

You have requested bug reports from the community, without spcifying what sort 
of bugs you want to focus on.  For reasons of my own, I have chosen to focus 
systematically on built-ins, and have shared my approach and findings, in case 
they are of any use/interest to others.  In particular, there are probably 30-50 
specific bug reports that can be extracted from these tests.  Do you want me to 
file them?
