	MySQL has the most sophisticated test suite I have ever seen includin a 
special langauge mixing SQL input and expected output matching and 
interaction with the outside system.

	However I have noticed two reasons for tests failing.
1.) with recent changes to openssl and the complexity of that area it is 
hmuch harder to match output.
2.) some of the tests involving tools seem to fail in the test environment.

I spent a fair amount of time investigating 1.) 2.) may be a real if 
minor bug and I would like to investigate more and might be what you are 

There are some patches disabling various tests. You might want to add 
your findings to those. If you wnat to investigate yourself you can run 
the tests individually by going to the correct directory and running 
./mysql-test-run <test name> or something like that. That can be a 
starting point.
