Joel,
  Clicking Testpoint just marks it as a testpoint for output, but does not
even
automatically untent the via.  So it would allow you to have soldermask on a
test point.
Hum, they might complain about that in the test department.
   Seems the only solution/work around is create separate components for the
top and bottom testpoints and then modify them as needed.  Protels treatment
of testpoints leaves something to be desired.
Perhaps the next version will give us the control we need.  It would be nice
to have clearance checking for testpoint to testpoint spacing.  And also
soldermask control for each side of the board, since you only need access
from one side, not both.  
Carl

carl,

have you clicked "top" or "bottom" test point in the pad/properties dialog
box? (double click on pad in component editor) i've not had any problems in
using that for a single-sided tp and not a th via.

hope this helps.
