smbtorture returns true even invalid test name is specified

Hi list,

I've encountered a bug in smbtorture and would like to report it.

smbtorture in Samba 3.0 always returns true even for a invalid test name.
I've filed this bug in bugzilla, so please refer to the bug #924 for
more details.
This bug is not applicable to Samba 4.0, as it implicitly checks whether the
test names specified are valid or not.

Because of it, torture-RW2.test in testsuite/build_farm always succeeds,
even though it specifies invalid smbtorture test name 'RW22'.
