Sounds good.  How can I help with it?

Yes, that explained the output very well, thanks Thomas.

Fwiw, I got a lot of output from it...  It seemed fairly continuous
through the test.  I'll get a better capture of it next time I run it.

Sure, I'll get a more detailed time report and machine summary tonight
or tomorrow.  Like I mentioned it seemed to take less than a few minutes
- I started it, went for coffee, and it was done when I got back.  This
is on a 3GHz P4 with 512k cache, 1G memory, and ATI Radeon R350.

*Nod*  And track the quantity of success/failures, like we do for LTP.

It's from a separate repository from the pdx.freedesktop.org anonymous
cvs.  It requires xrender to run (which I got via cairo).
