... or not. In fact, the bug says quite clearly that the test currently
passes on x86 _only_ because it does 200 iterations of <whatever>, and
increasing that number makes it fail on iteration 244.  :-(

Interestingly (also stated in bug 192101), it seems to work on RedHat. 

So there's definitely something wrong there, and playing with
Architecture: will _not_ be helpful for anybody.

I agree that gnucash is important. I use it myself. ;-)  However, if it's
that important then there's two more months to hunt down that bug...
