           Summary: browser tests should assert there are no pink error
                    boxes on the page

When I kick back with some popcorn and watch Sauce Labs browser test movies, I
sometimes notice error boxes appearing on the screen. Yet the test continues,
only to fail later.

The classic example is 

MEDIAWIKI_USER=Selenium_user bundle exec cucumber

the login fails with "Login error Incorrect password..." yet the tests

There are other examples where the page reports an API error and the tests keep

99% of the time, if anything appears on the page with class=errorbox or
class=error, it's serious.  Is there a way tests can implicitly assert these
aren't on the page on every step, and if not the case report the contents of
the .error/.errorbox ?
