seleniumrc_fu initial test issue

I have the seleniumrc_fu plugin installed and setup according to the
instructions, and can run the selenium:test task if there are no test
cases. My first test case simply does an open_home_page to verify
that things are working at all. Unfortuniately there seems to be an
issue with even this simple a test case. The following suggests that
there is an issue with the getNewBrowserSession command. The browser
name appears to be prefixed with a special character. Is this
normal? I am not sure how to proceed in diagnosing this as it appears
to be on the selenium server side of the house.

I also note that when the test fails it does not shutdown the selenium
server. At least it finds an existing server on rerunning the test.

By running the server in a separate window I got this from its output
which is getting helpful. It would be good if the documentation for
seleniumrc_fu had setup instructions that covered getting the browsers
defined and setup for Mac and PC platforms and for remote hosts to do
cross-platform testing.
