valgrind reports a problem when running test_doctest.  I haven't
spotted a problem with the code, but the report is consistent (hmm, I
thought there were 3 warnings, but now there's only 1):

Buildbot failures:

openbsd: test_ctypes fails
tru64 alpha: test_signal sometimes hangs
s/390: test_socket_ssl fails probably due to firewall issue in
cygwin: hopeless

debian hppa sometimes hangs when running a forking test (fork1,
wait[34], possibly subprocess).  I am working on a patch to help debug
this situation (already checked in once and reverted).  I can't
reproduce this failure.


Some tests fail when run under regrtest.py -R 4:3: .  There are at
least these problems:

* test_logging
* test_optparse
* test_sqlite
* test_threaded_import
