"In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are not."

The main test script long had exactly such a setting; I wrote what I wrote because it is _still the wrong way around_ and as I happen to have added to unit tests this weekend _having suffered through precisely this setting_.

But we are on different wavelengths here and I evidently do not get my point across to you. And as you are the one who could make a change where it matters, I have no choice but to rest my case in frustration.
