Same problems here on SunOS4.1.3_U1

dunno about the 'as usual' part, but same problems here

I tried some combinations of configuration parameters
- OS: 4.1.3_U1, 4.1.4
- gcc: 2.8.1, 2.7.2
- vm: intrp, jit
- libs: static, shared
to no avail. Always the same problems.

Dito. Results are similar over here. I even get some more 'funny'
stuff, like *un*deterministic pass/fail/hang.
Some always fail, e.g DoubleNeg, DoublePrint.
Some sometimes fail, e.g. TestIntLong.
Some tests hang, e.g. ThreadState, UDPTest.
Sometimes compiling fails
with: exception.c:308: failed assertion `!INTS_DISABLED()'
or: ld.so: call to undefined procedure _strlen from 0x.....
Setting VERBOSE=on or compiling by hand and asking for
extra jit information with -verbosejit barfs even more.
This usually gives far more INTS_DISABLED failed asserts.
Especially the undeterministic behaviour troubles me. I thought about
machine utilization as changing factor (shouldn't be), but could not
deduct anything by going to a near-single-user-mode.
Gee, I'd like to use kaffe
