Thanks. I knew it was Nicolas' commit without even looking at author
initials :) but then I think that for the 4.4 release we should mark
it as an expected failure (and mark it as a test requiring addressing
in 4.5, at http://wiki.squeak.org/squeak/6188)
I suppose I'm semi-asking permission from the community to move these
failing tests into expected failures so I can get a green bar.
