      Description

      Maven doesn't detect that the following pom snippet is not valid:

      [...]
      <dependencies>
      <groupId>jdom</groupId>
      <artifactId>jdom</artifactId>
      <version>1.0</version>
      </dependencies>
      [...]

      if 'mvn compile' is run on the included test project, this is what happens:
