i'll never understand how could one working on something for more than a
day without sharing it :)

btw i don't know python so i can't send a patch and/or figure out what
the problem is, but:

$ ./pactest.py --debug=-1 --test=test/* -p ../../src/pacman/pacman
PASSED=1/25 (4%) FAILED=24/25 (96%)

yes, compiled with --disable-fakeroot. is this normal?
