Specifying an invalid test-path no longer complains about no tests to run, instead just does nothing

If you give a test-path that doesn't include any tests (f.e. if you typo a test name) then clicking run tests switches to the browser window and then nothing happens. The error console displays:

Error: linkArray is undefined
Source File: chrome://mochikit/content/server.js
Line: 555
simple fix to display an no tests found when specifying a --test-path for browser-chrome.  This fix also will work for mochitest and mochitest-chrome since they use the same functions.

this is passing on try server.
I updated the patch to current trunk and made a minor tweak. Joel, do you want to land this or shall I?

I just had this very issue (linkArray is undefined) because I hadn't updated the and ran make -C dom/tests/mochitest/chrome to make sure the test file was copied in my objdir. My copy of m-c is fresh from a couple days ago. Should I file a new bug or reopen this one?
