    Dear Paul,
    'make check' works fine on my dual Opterons (Beta4 was also successfull). I'll 
    use it on my cluster and let you know how it behaves on longer time-scale 
    (unlike others, I've had quite positive experience with Beta4).
    I've tested current version also on 32-bit Athlon (vanilla kernel 
    and Pentium III (several vanilla kernels 2.6.12.x and 2.6.13.x), both on SUSE 
    9.0 distro. Two of the standard tests always failed (simple_pthread.ct and 
    pipe.ct), both with restart/timeout message. I've tested also Beta4 and Beta2 
    on the same systems with identical results. Motivated by some of your e-mail 
    a few months ago, I've also tried to increase $test_timeout to 300 (on PIII), 
    but it haven't changed the results. What is the others' experience on 32-bit 
    Best regards
