Date: Mon, 2 Mar 2009 19:07:42 -0600
[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Package: perl
Version: 5.10.0-19
Severity: important

ext/threads/shared/t/waithires.t fails on some m68k real hardware,
although not on aranym. Hopefully this will get straightened out
with TLS.

Please disable this self-test on m68k for now.
