Facts matter - no more magic

Functional testing is mandatory in order to ensure the robustness of your application. GSequencer has got recently a basic functional test setup.

#include <ags/test/X/ags_functional_test_util.h> does mainly the job. It shall give you full automated testing control over Advanced Gtk+ Sequencer. The very first functional test using it is ags_functional_machine_add_and_destroy_test.c

It does for each built-in machine add it and destroy. This happens by calling g_signal_emit_by_name() and alike. Below you see the output of running within valgrind. If you ever tried to debug a GUI within valgrind, you know that can be quiet annoying. As the GUI's reaction is very slow.

Fixed memory corruption

The benefits are evident of functional testing. Just figured out a memory corruption as destroying AgsFFPlayer. There was some other wicked things going on. I was able to trigger SIGTRAP by calling following during the start of the test.

For now, the functional testing is going to be extended.

Bests,
Joël
