Hi vitamin,

Thanks for replying!  :D This is good to know.  If necessary, I'll restart the regression test.  I have a feeling the problem is in the series that didn't work for me.  However, I'll go all the way to the end and see what happens.

In the meantime, could someone add git bisect skip to the aforementioned wiki article?  That would have been TREMENDOUSLY helpful to know.  Especially since regression testing is requested on a semi-regular basis.
