This might not be a representative example, but it's fresh in my 
memory.  In the Thunar testcase, we're asked to create a folder called 
"Test" and a file called "test" but those names are in the same typeface 
as the rest of the instructions (where the word "test" appears numerous 
times).  I happened to miss the different capitalization, didn't get the 
expected result and was about to file a bug against the testcase before 
I eventually realized my mistake.
