Yeah, I guess that's my bad -- most people have those in their path,
since they have the Subversion binaries in their path, too.

However, those DLLs should be copied to the root of the test tree, like
the APR DLLs, not to the build output directory; I hope that's what you
mean, I haven't time to look at the commits right this minute.

I have no idea who wrote that and why, as it simply isn't true. The
python tests should always run from the source tree.

The Python tests do expect a certain structure to exist. I've always
tested outside the source tree (that is, the test /data/ were outside
the source tree), so maybe in-tree tests don't work because part of the
structure that's created with out-of-tree tests is missing.

Since copying the cmdline directory was never necessary, this option
isn't either.

For now, I suggest you test outside the source tree, as that's
guaranteed to work.

To clarify: you have to run win-tests.py from the source tree, that is,
your current directory must be the top of the working copy; then you
tell win-tests.py where to put your test output.
