I don't think so. It looks like the failing test is one that sets the
'classic' locale explicitly:
FAIL :: default classic date
default classic date output: 10/13/4
The reason it's failing is that this output should be 10/13/04. Honestly,
this failure isn't much to lose sleep over. The 'classic' locale output is so
terrible and non-portable that no-one should use it anyway. Looks like all
the failures in this set of test cases comes down to this issue.
