currently I think the most viable solution is to mark the failure as
expected. I'm still in the progress of evaluating a switch to -pt, but this
will take more time.

Maybe you can put an explanation into the markup, something like: "This
test fails because of limitations in the template instantiation model of
the compiler used (-timplicit_local), which causes two static objects of
the type
> to be created. It could be made to pass by using another template
instantiation model, but this is currently not feasible."

Feel free to reword it to suit your taste... :-)
