I'll try to have a look at it later today (if nobody has committed it
yet by then)

Looks good! Two small comments from a quick glance over your patch:
Why the assert_ -> failUnless change?

I'm not sure whether adding tests that fail are a good idea - it makes
it harder to catch real regressions. Can you comment out the failing
ones and a TODO or send a fix along that fixes the actual bug?
