The layout of the default new app now depends on the use of meteor.mainModule and meteor.testModule. If you decide to remove that configuration, you'll have to reorganize the directories. This is working as intended.

That said, if anyone has time to submit a PR to rename the test/ directory to tests/ for the default app and the --minimal app, I would happily merge it. Just be sure to update the meteor.testModule section in package.json accordingly.
