"Empty Constructor Is Redundant" warning

I get this warning highlight on my unit test classes. We have a wrapper
around the basic NUnit stuff (and I'm not using your nunit test runner just
yet), but this error pops up... however, if I remove the empty constructor,
then nunit cannot run the tests, saying that the class must have a public
constructor.

So this warning seems to be in error, imho. At least for this set of
classes (unit test classes). It's not redundant, it's required or the unit
test gui finds no test cases to run and apparently cannot instantiate the
class to run it. Or something. At any rate, something isn't right here.

Thank you for the report.
I will think on how we could fix this.
As a workaround, you could turn this warning off
