Sorry, not the slightest idea :(

It's the process at meta-comm that creates the tables with links to
non-existent pages.

I checked the back_reference test for gcc-3.4.5_linux_x86_64.
The test directory contains (timestamps are in UTC+0200):

-rw-r--r-- 1 m m 33 May 3 07:44 back_reference
-rw-r--r-- 1 m m 1384408 May 3 07:44 back_reference.o
-rw-r--r-- 1 m m 33 May 3 07:44 back_reference.output
-rw-r--r-- 1 m m 7 May 3 07:44 back_reference.test
-rwxr-xr-x 1 m m 1065301 May 3 07:44
-rw-r--r-- 1 m m 1634 May 3 11:48 test_log.xml

back_reference.output contains:



test_log.xml (1.5KB) is attached to this message.

It looks like the test actually passed. That would at least explain why
there isn't any failure page for it. I don't understand why the result
tables display a "fail*".

I also don't understand why this doesn't happen to the OSL2 results.

I ran only a single cycle on x86_64 today and the table indicates that
the results of that cycle get shown.
