The message of assertResourceContains is pretty useless.  What it tries
to say is that the expected resource exists (AntUnit's trunk that you
use in Gump would emit a different error message if it didn't exist) but
doesn't contain the expected text.

Since assertResourceContains uses the resourcecontains condition under
the covers it doesn't have access to the original content and thus
doesn't display a better error message.

We could make it load the resource under test via loadresource and use
that, but that would load a potentially big file twice - and one of the
loads wouldn't be required if the test passes.
