[[
Updated description of repos-test to fix running this test on Windows
Vista.

* build.conf
  (repos-test): Remove the magic word 'update' from the description to
allow
  running the test as non-administrator on Windows Vista.

Vista checks the file description for specific keywords (as 'update') to
determine if a file might be a installer and in that case prompts the
user for administrative privileges.

(The recommended way to fix this behavior is adding a xml manifest to
the executable but that would require extensive changes to the build
scripts.. This change is just to stop Vista from being stupid)
