Your conclusion seems wrong since the test is built with "-mieee -mfp-rounding-mode=d -frounding-math". Note that the failure is slightly different from that in the build logs on ds10 (which is an EV6 anyway). Maybe the problem is specific to EV6 and above? Is another alpha developer willing to help? I asked Martin Zobel-Helas for an account on ds10, but he is quite busy right now with listmaster stuff. Lennart, thanks for your help. Regards, Joachim P.S.: Please CC: me on replies.
