Oh, rgrep is as good as something else to test. After you ran it for the
first time, you can place the cursor in the *grep* buffer, and type
again and again 'g' (revert-buffer). This re-invokes the async
process. I have tested it it this way, w/o pain.

This doesn't count. shell-command runs a synchronous process, which is a
completely different story. In order to test it asynchronously, you
must call async-shell-command.

Yes, pls. I'm also trying some new tests every single day, but I'm
running out of ideas ... any proposal is welcome!
