dunno, actually only a few PPC/Linux people are using snapshots right now (it
is needed to build the egcs mainline). I get this FAIL since early January,
981227 is the last snapshot I have without this problem. What can I do to help
to track down this problem?

maybe glibc-2.1/glibc-2.1.1pre1 enforce this? Do people on other glibc-2.1
platforms see this failure too? Or is it PPC only?
