Re: [Bug 5537] Checker aborts on bad URI in redirect

Question on this one -- according to the code this is kinda intended
behavior. If the last request ended in some kind of exception we
assume we don't actually have a document to test, so there are no
results to report.

I kind of agree with this and recall a long argument on a whiteboard
about this. Just checking, what do people think about the right
behavior here? Garbage in, garbage out, I say, so I am not
particularly concerned if a situation like this results in an
exception (subsequently, looks like a change has turned this internal
exception into a more appropriate TestException), or if it becomes
some meaningless test results stating that the result is fail fail
fail because the body is empty and all kinds of screwed up as a
result. Just a different garbage out.

I'm happy to 'fix' this, just want to know if everyone agrees with
that, or whether this needs discussion.
