OK, I misread the blame output---sorry about that.
But that does not change the fact that your tests caught a bug in
your own code, and the issue was solely between you and your own
code without involving criticism from anybody, does it?
Unless you count a barf from a rather old version of Mercurial as a
criticism, that is.

Just to make sure new people who may be watching with popcorns in
their hand from sidelines do not get a wrong impression, I do not
share your "most people take attacks ..." observation.
In reviews I have seen over the years around here (and also reviews
at $DAYJOB), I rarely saw such a reaction by the person whose change
is reviewed. I view this list as very cooperative and productive
environment most of the time.
In any case, there was not even any attack---it was merely your code
not passing your own test on a platform you did not have access to,
which is not something to be upset about.

Yes, this is not even an old regression. If you no longer want to
have it in contrib/, I can drop it in future releases (but not in
v2.0), so that people can find the latest and greatest directly from
you. Otherwise, queuing a fix on 'pu' and then to 'next' in
preparation for an early graduation for the release after v2.0 (and
as a fix, it may want to go to older maintenance releases) is also
fine by me.
