Tests, reftests and support files with same file name is still a problem...

Also many tests from TTWF events do not follow, do not comply with the
filename template.

When I visit
and then click on its associated reftest
I end up into a Shepherd file about a retracted version of a reftest
which is not loadable.

I do not understand why there is a Shepherd file about a retracted
reftest which can not be examined or viewed anyway...
