While we're at it, document why one of the two tests doesn't pass (since
I had long since forgotten it)...though the reasoning makes me question
why it's considered a failure at all.  Maybe I had a good reason when I
introduced it, or maybe I just wasn't looking at it clearly?  Either
way, the explanation may help a future reader.
