             Summary: Failing unit tests for guacamole-server not triggering 
build failure
                 Key: GUACAMOLE-662
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GUACAMOLE-662
             Project: Guacamole
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: guacamole-server
            Reporter: Michael Jumper

The unit test for the "nest" instruction (hopefully soon to be deprecated via 
GUACAMOLE-611) has been failing. Assuming the failure is legitimate, it hasn't 
been a problem in practice since the "nest" instruction has been unused for 
some time, but the fact that this failure has gone unnoticed is troubling. The 
build results currently show the following for {{make check}}:

PASS: test_libguac

# TOTAL: 1
# PASS:  1
# SKIP:  0
# XFAIL: 0
# FAIL:  0
# XPASS: 0
# ERROR: 0

The test log within {{tests/test_libguac.log}} contradicts this, showing that 
there is actually a test failure (not to mention more than one test total):

If "nest" is truly not behaving correctly, it should be corrected. If "nest" is 
correct but the test is wrong, the test should be fixed. Most importantly, the 
testing portion of the build process should be corrected such that:

# The test report actually captures the correct number of tests passing and 
test failures.
# A failing test fails the build.
