This is IMO one of the funniest example of copy&paste-programing
we have on the testsuite. :-)
$ grep -rn "test running programs" * | wc -l
I'd guess that string appeared on one of the first tests ever
written for GDB (that actually tested basic functionality as
running programs), and then spread around as people copied tests
as a starting base rather than start from scratch. I do that to!
Proper review coming...
