Rule number one in regression testing is to not depend on volatile data. Which I seem to have violated in file t/02simple.t in the Perl package Finance::YahooQuote.

Which lead the automated Perl test scripts to remind me for a few days now that the full company name for symbol IBM no longer corresponded to what I had encoded. Not really a bug, but a failure in tests anyway.

So without further ado: a new version 0.23 of Finance::YahooQuote which addressed this issue is now in the Debian queue and on CPAN and my local yahooquote page.
