Wonderful :-) The database bits are a pain to validate without your

In a nutshell it is a fairly useless maintenance disaster - we are
working hard at producing much more reliable, in-code unit tests that
~every builder and tinderbox can run during the build, and that execute
The "runs for days" element of the test-suite was mostly a function of
poor design and implementation - and most of the time was spent in
'sleep' calls ;-)
