I think that it is not too bad if DISPLAY is not set.
(1) In such a case you cannot run an X application properly so you
cant run the tests anyway. well, technically you could by passing
-display but seldom do folks do it.
$ unset DISPLAY
$ display # an X11 app
display: Unable to connect to X server () [Function not implemented].
(2) Even if you ssh to a remote host and enable X11 forwarding the
DISPLAY variable is automatically set.
(3) I dont know why one would want to unset DISPLAY. :)
