I suspect this is nothing to worry about ... not a bug, but rather a failing of 
that particular testcase (checking the format of a negative currenty for 
Brazilian Portugese).
The testcase supports two variants, because different version of the ICU 
library on different systems produce different results.
It seems likelly that the version of ICU on your system is using a third 
variant of format for negative currency values, one the testcase does not allow 
for.
I have changed the testcase in git to use a fixed negative currency format, 
rather than the one ICU supplies for the pt_BR locale, in order to avoid that 
variability.
