Ok, thanks I tried. 

I tried creating a test for ecawave boot/close sequence, but it is
difficult to create the test case and run the test case.  A testtool
really needs to react to UI updates rather than depend on a
predetermined timing. Also, it requires real-time trial-and-error to
create testsuites, which is bad.

dogtail sounds more like the way to go, although it seems to require
the GUI apps to cooperate.
