TitleMMQA fails to handle assertion failures
Assigned userGareth Rees
DescriptionIf an MMQA test case fails an assertion, then the output looks like this:

    Unexpected line in output:

and the test case quits without a PASS or FAIL indication.
AnalysisThe output of asserts() in test/test/testlib/testlib.c is missing the initial ! that would indicate that the assert_or_abort=true line is setting a test output variable. This output should in any case be generated by calling report() as in mmqa_assert_handler instead of trying to emulate report().
