In fact, these failures look highly suspicious to me. Exit status 139
indicates a segmentation fault. I haven't seen these tests actually
/crash/ on any system or compiler before, including all viable
permutations 32/64-bit linux/windows gcc/msvc. There's definitely
something very odd going on here; I hope we can clear it up quickly.
