Very simple test would be :
> echo 'quit' | ./gnubg -b -r -t -q

another one.
> echo 'new match 3\nresign 3\nanalyse match' | ./gnubg -t -q

These are smoke test rathter than unittest.

Personally, I do
>./gnubg -t -p test.py
with python script following:
import gnubg
gnubg.command('import mat "test.mat"')
gnubg.command('analyse match')
gnubg.command('save match "test.sgf"')
print 'done'

Of cause, you need test.mat.
To evolute this to a regression test, need to put reference.sgf in
repo, and diff them.

Is there listed or archived gnubg errorious positions in past?
And I need "reference" revision of gnubg... othere wise I will never
know which is 'correct".
If any, I want to turn it into automated regression test suite with
python script.

I made small patch to give Python interpreter in gnubg sys.argv.(see attachment)
what does it  mean:
> ./gnubg -t -p sysargv.py this is argv
with python script sysargv.py following:
import sys
assert sys.argv[1] == 'this'
assert sys.argv[2] == 'is'
assert sys.argv[3] ==' argv'

I think it may help testing a lot, by parameterizing script with
datafile for testing.

Another idea, but may needs lots of work is "recoding/playing UI event to file".
Big rewards for this are
- easing end user level report of bug... gnubg it self record UI
events. end user just sends a record file.
 with great bug reproduction odds.
- regression test/unittest for UI.

One extension of this idea would be having scripting API for this UI
event serialization.
ie. injecting UI event via script language.
