This most likely means you are testing against a MySQL database and  
you do not have innodb enabled (and hence have no transactions).  
(Note: once you do get InnoDB enabled you will have to recreate the  
schema. Note also that MySQL does not tell you when it silently  
converts the InnoDB table handler to the MyISAM table handler because  
the former one isn't fully enabled.)

We have not in the past but in general I think it would be desirable.  
There is an outstanding bug I have to investigate (it is not tested  
for yet) but that would only prevent a 1.6 co-release, not really 1.5.2.
