Testing is not an Option!

I released Gnumeric 1.7.3
only to discover that a little too much editing killed evaluation in
very common situations. Bad me! 1.7.4 is out.

That is not going to happen again.

I sat down and spent a few hours automating most of our tests. Then
I added a valgrind run and the beginning of tests of our importers.
It is part of “make distcheck”, so testing is now mandatory and automatic.

The workhorse of these tests is ssconvert, our handy little command-line utility that converts from one format to another.
By forcing evaluation of all cells between import and export,
we end up exercising quite a large part of the core. As well
as a few importers and exporters. No GUI tests are currently performed, but I suspect we can add that
too somehow.
