Also it fails in "g4 osx.4 trunk". In all the other platforms it works

Which is very strange, because this is the third test in
"testTimeoutAttribute" (this method actually tries different ways of
calling the function, no real functionality). 

In other tests, sometimes fail in the second test of the method.

In the test setUp() method, I'm setting the serving socket up, with a

I can try to to put a listen(5). I can try to reorder the tests. I can
try a lot of things to see why there's a problem here.

But I do not have access to any of both architectures (Alpha and G4).
And I don't want to try everything through commits in the repository
(or should I?).

I do not want to leave these failing tests. I'll fix them, or comment
them out (actually, the tests are very superficial).

What do you do in these cases? How do you deal with failing test cases
in platforms to which you do not have access?
