Ah, yes, indeed.

As noted in one of the other threads, the tests make several assumptions 
(like this one) in order to test certain hard-to-test aspects of CSS.
Is the assumption here one that is inconsistent with your implementation?

I can look into the feasibility of marking tests that make assumptions of 
this nature, if you think that would help.
