Sinon.test incompatible with asynchronous tests #170

I wrapped one of my asynchronous tests with sinon.test and it no longer waits for done() to be called and instead returns true at the bottom of the function.

My test is in the format:

it('testname', sinon.test(function(done)  {

Are there any plans to handle asynchronous test functions? The functionality can be implemented, but it probably requires asynchronous trycatch.

As far as I can tell, this is implemented in https://github.com/cjohansen/Sinon.JS/blob/master/lib/sinon/test.js#L19-L68 and verified in https://github.com/cjohansen/Sinon.JS/blob/master/test/sinon/test_test.js#L127-L133.

I am closing this issue.

Please re-open with a reproducible example (or even a failing test) if you disagree.

Yeah, I also struck this. Seems to be fixed in newest version of sinon.
