Yes, I'm seeing similar failures on a number of platforms (arm, spu, s390x).

The reason seems to be that the test case is attempting to display local
variables that are not yet initialized, and thus their contents are random.
For C++ objects, this includes a random vtable pointer ...

Now, this particular sub-test appears to do this deliberately; all the other
sub-tests only create the varobj *after* their corresponding objects were
initialized.  I'm not quite sure what exactly the test is supposed to be
testing, but I guess it ought to be done differently ...
