IMHO, if it's very hard to write a test for it, then the best thing to
do is check it in anyway, and somewhere list the absence of the test
case as a bug in itself (if you want).  Just because something's hard
to test automatically hopefully shouldn't mean it can't go into the
code. :-)

Thanks for the update, by the way, was wondering what was up.
