Penalty Dice

What happens when you have as many or more penalty dice than test dice available? Is the test automatically a failure, or will there be some sort of 1-die minimum rule?

For instance, say Nicholas Rivers (Endurance 5) has just taken his third wound. Given that his Fighting is only 3, would he ever be able to obtain a result higher than 0 on any remaining tests with that trait?

I figure if you're that wounded, the best you can do is try not to bleed on the carpet. Even "easy" tasks become impossible when the penalties stack up. I have no problem reducing the roll to 0 dice. But an official statement would be nice.

The QS rule is clear and unqualified: all test dice can be canceled.

If that weren't the case, the rules needed to have said so. This is the most succinct way of imparting the rule, assuming - as we should - the absence of this qualifier to be intentional rather than accidental.
