Hi Johnny,

Yes. As the test runner should have told you:

  "As of 2012-02-06, you could well be seeing up to 35 failures, due
to what looks like a bug in jsdom. Sorry about that."

In answer to question 1, I'll quote from an email I sent you earlier:

The failures aren't ours to solve -- they're caused by a bug in jsdom,
which I don't control. I currently have no plans to dump jsdom, as the
in-browser test runner provides a decent stop-gap.

I don't have any explicit plans, but it's something we're discussing,
so feel free to join in the conversation at:
