OK, let's use 3.2.3 and 3.3.1 as the Linux release criteria. Since someone
has to research every failure, and this is our first release using formal
criteria, we don't want to go overboard.

I've just installed 3.3.1 on Windows, and am getting those same four
failure plus failures from:

      date_time/testmicrosec_time_clock (runtime failure)
      iterator/interoperable_fail (compile_fail test isn't failing)

That seems like a reasonable number to fix or otherwise account for.
