Ah! That one was a tough one for me. Good work!

Attached quiets the output from the test..

For what it's worth, I think these are all good ideas. As it is, development
tends to stall when the repo caretaker (George, zimba) is unavailable. Darcs
seems to support emailing patches into a repo. Perhaps that could be set up
and a few people given the email address? If that is difficult, perhaps ssh
and sftp access could be allowed? More committers would mean less pressure
on any one individual.

I like the review process though of emailing patches to the list. Things
like your patch, because they fix a failing test, should get applied
quickly. But bigger patches are able to get a better review.

Hopefully more people will join in this thread. It's good to talk about
things like this, especially if it improves things. :)
