Not being familiar with the test script or ext, I can at least say that 
nothing actually went wrong: 'All tests successful'. Apparently there 
are some things in the test script that are known by the author to not 
work quite right, so he marked them as 'todo'. The problems seem 
harmless in any case, with things returning 0 instead of undef.

So, unless you've reason to believe there is something significant going 
on, all is well.
