this is one danger of using the live-dev thing, you can get confused :)  if
you just follow the

$ make && t/TEST t/foo.t -v

paradigm you'll always get things right (I use an alias myself :).  with
smalish modules it shouldn't add too much time - the live-dev thing was
really for mod_perl where even the gloss-over make does for unchanged c/xs
files can take a while.

this has nothing to do with Apache-Test - mod_perl directs all request-time
handler warnings to the error_log.  if you warn from foo.t is should print
on the terminal provided you have verbose mode set (IIRC).
