Yah, same thing here. (Except I don't both to edit the tests tho. I
just have to read the tests to figure out how to produce the same
sequence and create a batch script which sets it up...)

Perhaps a way to tell the test framework to run X commands before
stopping? And, have --verbose print the number for each command?
i.e. it could fail on 'command' 1512, and you could pass it
--stop-at=1512 or something. A thought. -- justin
