Yep, that's because I was unsure of the interface.  But OK.

Execute a test by performing given shell @var{commands}.  These commands
should normally exit with @var{status}, while producing expected
@var{stdout} and @var{stderr} contents.  If @var{commands} exit with
-status 77, then the whole test group is skipped.
+status 77, then the whole test group is skipped.  Otherwise, if this test
+fails, run shell commands @var{run-if-fail} or, if this test passes, run shell
+commands @var{run-if-pass}.

The @var{commands} @emph{must not} redirect the standard output, nor the
standard error.
