Actually, no, that's not the purpose of XFail, as far as I conceive it:

Tests should be marked XFail if a feature currently isn't implemented
or behaving as it should, but that fact is recognised and agreed upon
[ie postponing a fix is acceptable].

This test however wasn't present when the wc-replacements branch was
merged, but the fact that it fails constitutes a regression. In other
words: it's absolutely not acceptable to XFail.

To ease the pain: I'll be fixing the problem tonight (probably), if
zhakov isn't working on it...
