Shane - is this during Chapter 5 or Chapter 6 build of glibc?  If it's 
during the chapter 5, I probably wouldn't worry about it - testsuites in 
chapter 5 rely so much on the host, and Knoppix CD's make acceptable, 
but not perfect hosts.  I've seen some of the clock tests fail before in 
chapter 5 myself, but pass in the chapter 6 build.
