From INSTALL:

    =item Timing problems

    Several tests in the test suite check timing functions, such as
    sleep(), and see if they return in a reasonable amount of time.
    If your system is quite busy and doesn't respond quickly enough,
    these tests might fail.  If possible, try running the tests again
    with the system under a lighter load.  These timing-sensitive
    and load-sensitive tests include F<t/op/alarm.t>,
    F<ext/Time/HiRes/HiRes.t>, F<lib/Benchmark.t>,
    F<lib/Memoize/t/expmod_t.t>, and F<lib/Memoize/t/speed.t>.

So in short I wouldn't worry about the failure.

Regards,
Dave.
