Interesting one this as there is a very large number of failures compared to recent vb100 tests, I too wonder what it was about.

Further investigation seems it was false positives (1 as IBK said) that were the failure reason no wild list misses.

Better a false positive than a miss detection.

You can't post directly to the results as they are only available to those registered users, they have to logon to get access.

funny it seems results were 'adjusted' because now it says 1 false positive  ;D
one more adjustment to 0 and all is fine  ;D
