None of the other text_warchive tests (~50) are failing either. It's
a problem which only appears in this one specific case. That's not
to say that test is the problem, it's just that appears in that one case.
This is mainly a heads up to let people know that the serialization problem
in develop is being worked on, but it may be a day or two before I have a

I fixed this months ago.

Now that it's been fixed again - the offending test is failing again on
all platforms using libstdc++.

I suggest rolling back the most recent change then everything
should start passing again.
