FWIW, three interproces library tests hang on HP-UX/ia64:
I did not have a chance to investigate it and, probably, won't have for
a while. When I start regression tests, I also start a script which waits
for these tests and kills them ('/usr/sbin/fuser -ku test_executable').
And no, I don't run tests for multiple toolsets.

Ion, you'll have to fix the names. We went through a fair amount of work
to make it possible to run test in parallel. It's an important feature
as it reduces testing time considerably, even if you only have 1 CPU.
Note, it may not only be for different compiler versions. If you have
different tests that can clobber each other, it's possible they will
clobber each other when run on a single compiler test run is they tests
run at the same time.
