thanks for your answer.
the problem is, that zope and plone must have been started (somehow)
since much of the environment is setup dynamically.
its startup script looks something like:


exec "$PYTHON" "$ZOPE_RUN" -C "$CONFIG_FILE" "$@"

when this script is started with a "test" parameter, insted of starting
zope/plone the test are run.
so it would be nice, if the last line could be replaced with:
exec "$WING" "$ZOPE_RUN" -C "$CONFIG_FILE" "$@"
