I suspect that there are still glibc issues.
With 2.3.2.ds1-22, I don't see anywhere this number of fails:

I made a couple of changes to libjava on head which fixed problems
with java exception handling on the pa:
2005-08-21 John David Anglin <firstname.lastname@example.org>
* stacktrace.cc (_Jv_StackTrace::UnwindTraceFn): Fix typo in newLength
assignment. Cast operands of compare to function pointer type.
2005-08-20 John David Anglin <email@example.com>
* sysdep/pa/descriptor.h: New file.
* configure.host: Use sysdep/pa/descriptor.h on hppa*-*.
Possibly, we need to look at back porting these fixes. However,
the code in 4.0 is different and I wasn't seeing the same errors.
