Doh, I hadn't noticed that. I have installed junit 3.8.2-4 on it now.
Lets see what the next build says.

BTW. Do we really want to use junit? I always thought that was somewhat
problematic because it has an odd (GPL-incompatible) license (the CPL).
Which seems to prevent redistribution of the larger junit (CPL) + tests
(GPL) because of the license conflict. Or does the special GPL-exception
kick in here?
