CTest: since version 3.19.0, no tests are executed in dashboard client mode
we are using ctest in dashboard mode ("-D Continous"), and since we updated to cmake version 3.19 the defined tests are not executed at all.
Checking the problem a bit further, I found out that the problem was introduced in version 3.19.0, as my tests showed that it does not exist in 3.18.5.
If the "-D Continuous" is removed from the ctest call, all tests are executed as expected.
Looking at the output that is generated when the error occurs, it seems that after executing the pretest script that we have, ctest skips the test execution and immediately tries to analyze the coverage and then uploads the result files.
