I can't reproduce the "TODO passed" on either Solaris 8/SPARC or 
OpenSolaris/x86, either on 5.12.1 or 5.12.2-RC1.

When running the test in verbose mode on either 5.12.1 or 5.12.2-RC1:
On Solaris 8/SPARC, I do get the core dump, and see the 'Segmentation 
Fault -- core dumped' message in the output, but the TODO doesn't pass. On 
OpenSolaris/x86, I also get the core dump, and the TODO also doesn't pass, 
but the 'Segmentation Fault -- core dumped' message doesn't appear in the 

In short, I see no changes at all between 5.12.1 and 5.12.2-RC1 in regards 
to this TODO test, on either Solaris 8 or OpenSolaris.  I don't think it's 
worth worrying about for the release.
