It is the 11 th. test of the first 45 tests (first group of total 3 test-groups).
The failing test is the second part of a test creating a "so-called" workflow (originally divided in 
two test-cases caused by Memory issues).
Steps in the test means how many webtest-tasks? The number of webtasks is round about 270.
