I agree that it's a low price, and that it fixes more than it breaks,
but it does involve switching the logic in a simple basic test.

Also note that ignore-errors expands into a condition-case, so instead
of changing the tests, the patch could be tweaked to return nil if the
test signals ert-test-{failed, skipped}. Or the two tests could use
condition-case directly and make sure that ert-test-failed is/isn't

I'd like to get some more opinions on this bug, in the hopes that
there's a better solution. Eli/Noam (or anyone happening upon this), do
you have any ideas on how to solve this?
