I hate more than anyone else in the company to bring up a certification issue with this, but a number of jurisdictions require a "system test" before every election.  I just helped Knecht yesterday with an RFP from Riverside that required this.  That is why the AccuVote displayes the silly ***System Test Passed*** message on boot up instead of "memory test passed", which is all it actually tests.

No argument from me that it is pointless.  You could probably get away with a batch file that prints "system test passed" for all I know.  We will do something along those lines with the new unit after a memory test or whatever.
