That output is strange, since your bug report contains a copy of
stderr, and that copy does have 486 lines in it; and yet apparently
your "wc" program reported only 369 lines.

So, I suspect that your "wc -l" program is broken.  Can you please
test my theory by running the following shell commands?

  cd tests
  ./testsuite -v 59 60

  for file in testsuite.dir/*/stderr
    echo $file
    wc -l <$file
    grep -c '^' <$file

I'm using "grep -c" to double-check the line counts produced by "wc".
If you can think of another reliable way to count the number of lines
in each stderr file, please do that too.

Ah Hah!  I'm upgrading textutils to 2.1 right now :-)

Thank you very much.
