[Qgis-developer] Unit tests failing - a heartfelt plea

I wanted to bisect the first wrong commit after 1.8 but I found that
final-1_8_0 also fails in qgis_rasterlayertest and qgis_rendererstest.
Is it possible? Release was made with broken tests? Is it my local
problem? Are the tests independent of user settings?

OTOH, the results for final-1_8_0 of qgis_rasterlayertest are much
better than latest master.
