[webkit-dev] Handling failing reftests

Hi All,

I ran into a failing reftest and I didn't find a proper way for handling it.
fast/multicol/cell-shrinkback.html is a new reftest introduced in http://trac.webkit.org/changeset/113738 .
But unfortunately it fails almost everywhere (Chromium, GTK, Qt).

Chromium guys added platform specific png files into platform/chromium-linux and platform/chromium-win
directories - http://trac.webkit.org/changeset/113790

I tried to do same thing for Qt port, but the test still fails - http://trac.webkit.org/changeset/113869
It seems NRWT ignores expected png and txt files for reftests at all.

And now I found that it is added to the test_expectations.txt for Chromium:

So what is the proper way for handling failing reftests? In this case isn't possible
if the reftest is incorrect, because it fails almost on all platform, but Mac?
