I think the test is supposed to pass if user dummy cannot write to /.
This is the normal situation where an unprivelaged user can't write
directly to the root filesystem.  However, your permissions
(drwxrwxrwt) are nothing like that.  Is there a reason you're allowing
everyone to write to /?  I would try setting the permissions to
something more normal and seeing if the test passes.  You can always
put the permissions back later if you really need them for something.
