In any event they seem to pass reasonably often on 32 bit machines so  
I guess it's a 64 bit problem? Which *probably* isn't too hard to fix.  
Sam Tregar is obviously still active on CPAN and Maurice Aubrey has  
released modules in the last 12 months. So presumably one way or  
another the problem can be solved.
