Yes. It seems a flaw in the test design, not in the code itself. The
test is comparing int32 type values with the default int type. However,
the default type is platform dependent (int32 for 32-bit platform and
int64 for 64-bit platform). So, the default types comparisons should be
removed from the test.

Generally speaking it is always a good idea to open a ticket for
reporting tests that doesn't work, yes.
