That is exactly what I wanted to say.  If you want to "fix" it,
you'd need to figure out what the author of the "except" thing
wanted to test, adjust the args given to test-config (it cannot be
the same as the test-config invocation of the previous test), and
then fix the typo s/except/expect/.  Changing the typo alone *will*
of course make the test fail, because then the file with the
corrected name, i.e. "expect", has bogus lines that does not match
how the current invocation of "test-config" command is expected to
