tests now pass with the same results under Linux and OS X.

Excellent!   Thanks very much indeed.

Scott (if you're reading), perhaps we could add this to a read-me on the
EDTK download site?

It looks like this is finally going to happen.   Someone is looking at
updating it to 4.7 now.  With testing, we think it may be ready in around 4
weeks (unless schedules/priorities change).
I'll post an update here when it's done.

Chris
