The statfs invocation at line 183 in file
coreutils-5.0.91/lib/fsusage.c is the failing function.

Is there much of a difference in the libc/kernel interaction between
2.3.2-9 which works fine and 2.3.2.ds1 versions?

I suspect that you are right. Perhaps I can build the testsuite with
2.3.2-9 and then run it with the .ds1-10 glibc?
