The command show-output is broken on my laptop. Here is the relevant screen output;

    This breaks the test script. Without show-output, we cannot test whether submitted simulations actually run or complete.

    this has been fixed as of revision r1258. This would have been something that any contributor to simfactory could have fixed with very little effort. While I am more then happy to correct these problems, and most of them are my mistakes (I'll admit that freely), since there's a big push towards contribution, a bit of effort here would be appreciated.

    Somehow, the show_output command was renamed to show_display. It was correctly renamed in to show_display as well. This change was wrong -- I'm really not sure why it was renamed from show_output to show_display. Anyway, the CommandDispatch function inside of each sim-*py file looks at known_commands data structure present, and attempts to run the function command_(command-name) with dashes replaced by underscores, so for this specific instance, the command show-output is attempted to be run as command_show_output. Since show_output was renamed to show_display (still confused by this, it might have been a side effect of a find/replace regex), it was attempted to run command_show_output, but it didn't exist, as it was renamed command_show_display.

    Please, contributors, attempt to investigate crashes/errors yourself and identify if its an easy solution. If it is, please go ahead and commit a fix yourself, especially if its a blocker/critical issue.
