Hi Lloyd,

Thanks for your report.

The test 91 fails because the shell command 'ulimit -n 10' fails:

  ./testsuite[2100]: ulimit: The specified value exceeds the user's allowable 

Prior to this, a call to 'ulimit -n 4' is done *in a subshell*.  It
appears that on your system the call to ulimit in a subshell modifies 
the settings in the parent shell as well. At least, this is the only
reason for this behavior I can think of. Can you run the following shell
command and tell me the output it produces:

  ( ulimit -n 4 ) && ulimit -n 

As to the test 210, it basically worked as expected, except that
the test supposes that an attempt to remove the current working
directory results in the "Invalid argument" error.  However, on your
system "Device busy" is reported instead.  I have installed the
following patch to handle this:
