After your second mail I tried to reproduce by taking a test file,
marking one known_broken, even it is not to get FIXED, and then broke
next one.

And I got it reproduced.

the message that prints FIXED, does not execute print_test_description
but the ones that do BROKEN or FAIL does (did not fully check but yes).

And:

    print_test_description ()
    {
        test -z "$test_description_printed" || return 0
        echo
        echo $this_test: "Testing ${test_description}"
        test_description_printed=1
    }
    if [ -z "$NOTMUCH_TEST_QUIET" ]
    then
        print_test_description
    fi
