I'm not sure how old the test is, but I see that it has been failing 
since Feb 1.  (That is the earliest report I have online at the moment.)

The ticket is http://projects.scipy.org/numpy/ticket/1039 .  I added 
this specific failure mode to the ticket today.

It does not surprise me at all when the trunk is broken on solaris.  I'm 
mentioning it on the list because I see it is still broken in the 
release candidate.  I assume somebody would want to either fix the 
problem or remove the non-working feature from the release.
