OK, I pushed the tests and deleted my testing_rte branch (it was a mess

Now, as far as the tests themselves, there is an issue in a few tests
where I had to use some hackish code to get the tests to run. For
example, in PMA_RTN_getQueryFromRequest_test.php I have this piece of

------ >% ------
$cfg['ShowFunctionFields'] = false;
eval(substr(file_get_contents('libraries/data_mysql.inc.php'), 5, -3));
------ >% ------

Here's what I think is the problem here: data_mysql.inc.php is included
in some other file before this test is run and then $cfg['ColumnTypes']
is also unset in some other test. So when it's my turn to run a test,
simply using require_once does nothing since that file was already
executed before :(

Again, not sure if this can/should be fixed, but I thought that it's
worth a mention.
