Right. IMHO this specific bug asked for would usually mean that the 
server breaks and can pass anything to the application. Whatever 
happens: the server needs to prepare a data structure to hand over to 
the application. If it can't do that, then there's nothing to test what 
happens with the application.

I guess this kind of test (what happens with the application if it 
receives invalid data) needs to work around server/publisher components 
and inject data directly to application methods.
