same happens on i386
Comment 2 David Sainty 2001-11-30 13:52:33 EST
any ideas?
Comment 3 James Antill 2001-12-13 15:05:07 EST
Same problem occurs on the alpha. Manually running db-btree shows the following

not ok 86
not ok 87
not ok 88
not ok 149

Comment 4 Warren Togami 2005-05-22 17:52:24 EDT
closing, old, and not exactly fixable either.  Even the latest perl's test suite
is too fragile.
