A verbose text based runner might be great for a human looking into a

Some of the issue here is that the nightly test runs have started with 
the test runner that provides the least amount of information.

I'm not sure any test runner could have been more helpful than those 
that exist already for this *specific* issue.

The stack trace reported by the various runners was correct.
Running in the swing runner showed which tests failed.

The real problem was that it was a tricky problem and the actual errors 
didn't appear to make any sense.
