Build Information:
Paste the COMPLETE build information from "Help->About Wireshark", "wireshark
-v", or "tshark -v".
The WindowsXP buildbot build is failing due to a wslua testsuite failure, in
file reader/writer tests. I've looked at it a bit and I don't know
why it's failing yet - I know why it says it's failing, but it doesn't
fail for me. And it was passing on WindowsXP until the change to Lua 5.2.3,
but I run 5.2.3 all the time and it passes for me, and there's nothing
special about the portion that's failing.

So I've submitted a patch to ignore the failing test, so it can build
successfully and I can grab the automated build to debug it on WindowsXP (I
have WindowsXP, but not a build environment for it).

The temporary work-around patch is here:

This bug is to remind me to go debug and fix this once an automated build is
