When trying to run talos locally (./mach talos-test -t "Paint-In-Time 2") I'm hitting the following error:

11:21:44    FATAL - Uncaught exception: Traceback (most recent call last):

It's quite possible I'm invoking talos wrong, however if so it'd be great if there was a clearer error message :-) I've attached the complete log in case anything from there is helpful.
I am not sure what test Paint-In_Time 2 is related to, we have available tests listed in this file:

so something like |./mach talos-test -a 'tspaint'| would run a test.

I agree we need a better error message.

The thing I actually wanted was --activeTests in the end, however a cleaner error message here would have helped.

I am having the same issue, I've been running the devtools suite for testing talos changes with the following command:

./mach talos-test --activeTests damp --subtests custom.debugger --cycles 1 --tppagecycles 1

It looks like things start to break here

Ah my mistake! its working now :'D
I have a WIP for this- just need to spend another hour testing and preparing the patch.

I dropped the ball on this- focused on a few other things in March- this shouldn't be too hard and will pick this up in the coming week or so.
