That's great to hear!

Unfortunately that's not what the mode flag does -- this flag is 
primarily for labeling a session as it enters our database, to allow us 
to identify sets of sessions that are coming in from a certain 
experiment, setting, partner site, etc. It may also mean a slightly 
tweaked set of tests, but there's currently no way to run a single test. 
If you send us some of your session IDs (feel free to keep these 
off-list), we'd be happy to take a look regarding what might be going wrong.
