Downloaded the zip, unpacked with file-roller, moved image and changes
to my images folder, ran the image, ran the tests. Took a really long
time for anything to start, I thought it hung. Results:

3221 run, 3162 passes, 19 expected failures, 12 failures, 26 errors, 2
unexpected passes

Tried the "Run failures" button, that really did hand the process, had
to kill the window.

How do I report in more detail what the errors were?

For the record: FreeBSD 9.1 RC1 on a Dell Optiplex 745
