Those are the Martin Wille tests that are failing; the OSL tests are
all passing. Martin, to run the Python tests you'll probably need to
build different versions of Python for the different compilers.
Something in the newer GCCs causes very bad behavior when Python is
built with a different compiler than Boost.Python.
