Yes, but if the bug is in the test then disabling the test is one way
of fixing the bug.
On the other hand, a test failure on one architecture might (and, in a
sense, quite likely does)
indicate a bug in all architectures, so perhaps, to be on the safe side...
Has anyone looked at the failures in detail? If they look like they
could easily be a
consequence of differences in the results of floating-point
calculations I'd say just
disable them for now. If there's a segfault, that might be worth investigating.
