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%
