I did not mean to criticize you of not testing you stuff. Sorry
if I sounded that way, that was totally unintentional. I just
noted that I had myself written (and committed) stuff that broke
on the other OS version, so you should not trust tests that happened
only with one of both versions.

Just my 2 cents.
