I've read the README, but it was a while ago. I missed the real failure
description above the tree, sorry...I shouldn't have been up so late. :P

There are 6ish that fail every time, and a few others that seem
randomish. I'll start tracking them closer again, but was kind of
alarmed at the sudden jump in failures from the last time I ran them --
it doesn't appear that they get run on Windows much. I'll also start
running them on another machine as well.

Yep, I'm on the list and have noticed that HP-UX fails every night and
Linux passes every night...but I didn't see any other platforms.
