No problem, I know that feeling... :-)

Hmm. A screenshot of just the target component after a failed check is
not a bad idea.

Anyway, are you talking about old or new-style reports? In the
old-style reports you can get the check comment logged by starting it
with a '!'. In the new-style reports, checks are currently more or
less ignored. This is on the TODO for the next medium upgrade. You
should get a screenshot logged, however.

In general the idea is that the report gives you an idea about what
went wrong and the run-log has the detail. In most cases you'll need
to look at the log anyway to find the actual source of the problem.
But I agree that the report could be more helpful in this regard. As
you said, even the component ID would help.

Best regards,
