Subject: Test::Harness::runtests does not die on failure

runtests is documented to die if a test fails. This is broken in 2.57_03: failing tests are reported fine but the die does not happen. I tried it with 5.8.7 and 5.8.8 and I uploaded a dummy distro with a failing test for your testing convenience: CPAN::Test::Dummy::Perl5::Build::Fails If you run './Build test' on this with Test::Harness 2.57_03, you will note that the return value of to the shell is true. Running through the debugger showed me that runtests completes without dieing.
Fixed in 2.62. I'm sorry this slipped by me. :-(
