Abandoning repeat view test if first view fails - andydavies - 04-30-2013 10:57 PM

I've only seen this on a particularly 'crashy' IE9 private instance but...

If the browser crashes during the first view then sometimes the repeat view is uncached (as the first view didn't populate the browser)

Might be handy to have a way of specifying the repeat view test should be abandoned in this situation but I've no idea how realistic that is.

+1 this suggestion. If a test run fails, it should be thrown out and tried again until successful.

I've had this problem too and it can really skew the median selection.
