I see, there is a confusion about this. Probably nobody explained it before. A 
failing test case means a test case that causes the abnormal termination of the 
execution of the program or creates evidence of abnormal data in the program 

In this respect please see the atomic add and exchange tests as classical 
examples of what I mean.

I have read all your emails in detail and I have inspected all your 
attachments, modulo the ones I could not open.
