Inbox because I would not be surprised if there were many (external) senders of this assertion that have aligned their assumptions about this selector to the previous reality. But I don't like this idea at all.

Here is a different idea which I even tend to prefer: Deprecate meaningless #shouldFix: and introduce new #shouldFail: which scans for TestResult exError.

As it turns out now, "TestResult error" was indeed used in more places than I was assuming which I now need to rewrite. If you agree to introduce #shouldFail:, then I can rewrite ~40 senders in the Trunk image from "self should: [...] raise: TestResult error" to "self shouldFail: [...]", which I would consider more elegant anyway. :-) Please give feedback!

Many mechanisms signal possibly unhandled "harmless" exceptions and rely on their #defaultAction. This includes accesses to the source files, debugging operations, and many others. The assertion in its current form makes little sense.
