If a test inherently depends on a resolution, it can find out
(window.screen* properties, IIRC).
If it doesn't inherently depend on it, you found a bug. E.g. if buttons
are cut off, the window probably should be re-arranged. See all the
header pane bugs where the "more" button is cut off, the From address is
overlaid by the Reply button, sometimes in other languages only. All
these are major bugs (which are a problem for my customer), and should
be filed as such. So, running on different resolutions and having tests
fail is a good thing (esp. if it's consistent on a given box, so no
intermittent failures), because users run into the same issues.
