As I am trying to make perl work in perl 5.6.1 including making unit tests pass I am getting sick and tired of seeing my screen flooded with illegal seek statements and yet see that the test is declared as passed.

I noticed that some test cases did not make noise when run alone but the minute I run the TWikiSuite the noise begins.

I found out it is because of a few settings in RCSTests.pm

To make RCSTests pass with no noise I comment out this one statement

    #$twiki->{sandbox}->{REAL_SAFE_PIPE_OPEN} = 0;

And so enable people to enable this line for debugging but still not destroy the next test cases this works

sub tear_down {
    my $this = shift;
    # Next two are added as they influence next test cases run
    # in the TWikiSuite
    $twiki->{sandbox}->{REAL_SAFE_PIPE_OPEN} = 1;
    $twiki->{sandbox}->{EMULATED_SAFE_PIPE_OPEN} = 1;
    eval {$twiki->finish()};

adding the two lines for setting the SAFE_PIPEs to 1

I am not sure if this is the right way to do it but it works and now I can run all unit tests with very little noise.

So I check in the changes.

Per advice from Crawford I commented out both SAFE_PIPE settings. The original idea of those was extra debug feedback.

And then removed again the tear_down modification earlier checked in in 12944 12945 since this could prevent unit tests from running under Windows.
