-k is a new one for me.  When did it appear?

Unfortunately, I don't have any magic recipe for dealing with test
failures.  It seems that you just need to look at them one at a time and
figure out what went wrong, and then decide what to do about it.

a long long, casts it to a function pointer and calls through it.  Or
something like that.  It seemed screwier than that sounds.
