What TAG did you build from? setup200202 works fine for me, and doesn't
uninstall installed packages when test is selected. Like Chris I feel
the solution is wrong, but I can't articulate (yet) how the model is
wrong, and so I've followed the (apparent) consensus.

If you're looking at HEAD, bugfixes are going in there as well, but the
test mode behaviour is cosmetic IMO, as opposed to the silent failure
from local directories!
