I belive this might be due to a bug in the Maven Surefire plugin. I've 
added to our POM to specify the latest released version of Surefire to 
make sure you get the right version when building. Could you please try 
again with the latest from trunk? Also, what Maven version are you using?

That me writing incorrect documentation (I'm guessing you got this from 
our site). I've now updated the documentation. Sorry for the confusion:

Please ask further if this doesn't help you!
