Ok, it's a test VM, not really for production usage, plus it has little support for plugins in 64bit mode. 
It also doesn't run on 10.4 or earlier, unlike the 4.2.2 VM which should run on 10.2 or later. 

Garry ran it in 32bit mode on a Powerpc. It *should* have behaved like the 4.2.2beta1U VM. But 
he reported these tests worked with V5, but not V4.

Obviously that is interesting... 

What would be more telling is how it behaves if you run the tests on a MacIntel machine. 

BTW it does run on PowerPC 32bit, or MacIntel in 32 or 64bit mode. 
In theory if you do a get info, and check the (Open in 32bit mode) then it should enable use of all the 
4.x era plugins.
