Bert,

This antivirus test signature (eicar.com) is still causing trouble
when running the testsuite with antivirus enabled (AVG in my case),
making patch test #69 fail. I don't think disabling the antivirus
suite, or excluding the svn test folders, is a good workaround (I want
my test setup to be as similar as possible to a real-world
environment, so that includes an active antivirus suite).

Can we get this changed so the test doesn't fail when antivirus is enabled?
