It may be specific to particular versions of glibc and the kernel. At least
one of the test regressions is actually due to the bug described in
<http://lists.debian.org/debian-alpha/2007/10/msg00014.html>; I haven't dug
into the rest of the failures further at this point.
But if it can be reproduced on other distros as well, all the better.
