At the top of debian/tests/run-test-suite , there is:

# set to "-v t/modules/ext_filter.t ..." to run only a few test, but verbose

Changing that should give a bit more verbosity.

Also, the test frame work comes from a separate repository [1] and may need to 
be updated for new upstream releases. It's simply dumped into debian/perl-
framework in the debian package. On the other hand, the diff between our 
version and the current upstream version does not look like having to do 
anything with allowmethods.

Another idea is that maybe our perl libs behave differently with redirects. By 
changing /reset to /reset/ in t/modules/allowmethods.t one could avoid the 
redirect done by mod_directory.

I don't have time right now to try any of these. Maybe in the next few days. 
If somebody else has time, go ahead.
