I was hunting for a bug why DB_File->fd is returning 0 on windows (instead
of the DB file descriptor)
looking in the module, it has a test for it. only - the test is commented
took me a few minutes to find out which version this commenting-out was done
and then looked in the change log. ah, here it is:
"Fixed test failing under windows"
(DB_File version 1.812)
oh really? thanks. now the test works. but the module - not so much
this is so annoying
why do people write tests, if when the test failed they just disable it?
Maybe we should make a short for that: ICTDD - Ignored and comment test
