The tests above are unresolved, which means that they did not succeed, but
the reason is not clear.  In this special case, you are dealing with tests
that depend on a well behaved garbage collection.  Conservative marking,
however, can make them fail.  More generally, unresolved tests that deal
with weak pointers, guardians, and gc in general, may fail with one
version of guile and may succeed in a different run or after a
recompilation with little changes.  I have seen that case myself before.

Summarized:  Don't worry (at least don't worry more than you worry about
guile's conservative marking).
