It's not the first one though. We had one or two the last weeks. The biggest 
problem besides getting to 0 is consistency.

Have a look at Alasdair's Wine box. It succeeded a few times but also has tests 
that intermittently fail. The same is true for a lot of Windows boxes.

Nonetheless, we are in a far better position than a few months ago. And after 
Juan's batch it will be even better.

Having a low rate of failures also lowers the burden for people to fix the last 
remaining ones instead of staring at a red page ;)

Just some numbers for my W95, W98, NT4, W2K, W2K3 and Vista boxes:

June-24-2008  : 21.7% test failures
Aug-26-2008   : 19.7%
Nov-14-2008   : 9.8%
And yesterday : 6.1%
