testthat no longer suppresses messages #189

Minimal example:

Run interactively or via test_file this produces does not print a message to screen 0.7/0.8, but does on 0.9 (and current github).


f <- function(x) {
  message("I used to be hidden")

test_that("foo", {
  expect_equal(f(1), 1)

Run outside of a test_that block, the message is displayed on all versions (0.7-current).

expect_equal(f(1), 1)

The message printing messes up the output when running a big block of tests that produce a lot of messages as messages are interspersed through all the progress dots.

I believe this was incorporated in 2a60cc9, because prior to that, because this block suppresses messages while this block does not. I can't see where in the nested tryCatch/withCallingHandlers that a suppressMessages would go now (or the magic incantation to get invokeRestart("muffleMessage") to work).
