I have fixed the VMS port of the test_driver.pl and run_make_tests.pl for this issue.  This port has not yet been submitted.

I do not seem to have the ability to mark this bug as closed.

This has turned out to be a bug in the VMS port of the test harness.  Redirecting STDERR on VMS from perl is different than on Unix.

The features/errors test is also missing a diagnostic message.

It may be the same issue or different.  Tying to to this ticket for now.
