Good catch.

I prefer sticking to the default ... changing the method names from t_* to test_* needs to be done only once, whereas if we continue to use t_* we'll have to remind ourselves of that for all future tests that will be written.

So I've changed all the t_* method names to test_*. These tests should run now.

Thanks again for noticing this bug.
