I'm not sure how your setup differs, but there were 45 *.t failures over  
the weekend, and 41 now with 105 skips.  I don't have cvs, bzr, svn and  
darcs installed, but it looks like most of the skips are due to case  
insensitive filesystem, no +x bit, etc.  I also tried Yuya's legacy fs  
encoding patch, and it's still at 41 failures.  (I didn't try diffing the  
output of both runs because the order changes from run to run.)

I'm also somewhat concerned with things that don't have test coverage.
