What about


Would this have been caught by strict/traditional mode with mysql?  (Of 
course in this case we didn't actually have tempest testcases for server 
groups yet, not sure if they exist now.)

Also, while we're on the topic of testing databases...I opened a bug a 
while back for the fact that sqlite regexp() doesn't behave like 
mysql/postgres.  Having unit tests that don't behave like a real install 
seems like a bad move.
