I want to modify regrtest so the traceback info is stored in a file,
so you can still retrieve the data after a test run.  I haven't
started making this mod yet.

I ran the test manually last night, there were 12 errors IIRC.  It was
stuff like strings not being equal.  I can't send you the verbose run
right now.  I'll try to do it when I get a chance, but that won't be
before Sunday.
