Hi Mandy,

When Mark sent this for a preliminary review internally I had asked him to move 
the @ignore tag after the @library tag. I was prompted to do this because, when 
jtreg is run without the -ignore:quiet tag, the result is

TEST RESULT: Error. Parse Exception: `@library' must appear before first action tag

and oddly enough, @ignore is an action tag. But it seems like all of our test 
runs specify -ignore:quiet, which accepts @ignore pretty much anywhere, and 
other tests that use @ignore pretty much place it anywhere. So it's pretty much 
useless to run jtreg with anything other than -ignore:quiet.

Mark, I'd suggest following Mandy's advice to put @ignore right after @test, and 
to disregard what I had told you previously. Sorry for the confusion.
