I ran the tests locally for my configurations.

test_arithmetic_cpp_dec_float_2 and test_arithmetic_cpp_dec_float_3 failed on all the C++11 testers.
test_rational_io_cpp_int failed on gcc 4.2.1
test_float_io_cpp_dec_float failed on the released clang in C++11 mode (but passed on the "tip of tree" clang).

All of these also failed in this morning's test run using revision 84896.

So, at least in my tests, no new failures.
