[squeak-dev] Spur + DateAndTime: bug?

Why not just cleanly list the name of the failing test and nothing else?
 Tests are only understood and debugged in the running image, not from a
cryptic message reported on the build website.  It certainly can't be fixed
and committed without running the test in the image anyway.

So why do we want to see that debugging noise in the build-server reports?
