At present I'm more interested in making sure I understand the testing 
setup than any one individual test.   Your suspicion was correct, 
testing.conf was using 5.2.  I grabbed a 5.3 tarball, didn't expect it 
to test 5.2.  Setting the version to 5.3, that specific test now passes, 
but some (14) still fail... which leads me to believe there is more I'm 

What fails now, on up to date Ubuntu 14.04 host using the 5.3 tarball, 
with --no-parent patch and testing.conf set with SWANVERSION=5.3.0:
