Description:
With many tests marked as "expected", test batches tend to get aborted way too early. Only non-expected ("red") failures should count towards the maximum allowed before mtr aborts.

The current behaviour can have the counter-intuitive effect of a bux fix causing *more* tests to fail. This has been seen to happen when some tests marked as ex-fail no longer fail, so that MTR gets ro run more tests (which may fail unexpectedly) before giving up.

How to repeat:
Run a test batch with many tests listed in the experimental list, and with some of those failing.
