That would be really cool. We have far too few operating system involved

I think you might be right. The test tools aren't yet as portable and
fine-running as curl itself! Can you run one of these tests manually, like:

 $ cd tests
 $ ./runtests -d -v 101

And paste the output here? It could shed some light on what the problem might
be. You might also find some useful info in one of the files in log/ directory
that is present after a single failed test has been run.

These are the odd ones.

If you pass --enable-debug in the configure options, these ones will be tested
as well.

These four tests are not working anywhere atm, since we have no properly
working FTPS server... :-/ They're not even included in the release archives,
only in CVS. I mean to fix them one of these days.

I think you can proceed and start providing these logs anyway. It'll only make
us even more motivated to fix these errors since they'll appear as ugly red
blobs on the report page! ;-)
