For the Record:
I started getting a failure on the glibc tests (tst-timer4.out) which
was really strange because I had done several builds on the same
machine without getting the error.
The one thing that was different: I had the network cable plugged in
when the tests failed. No network cable, no failure.
The computer is the Sony PCG-GRX670, and I was using nALFS and the
lfs-livecd-x86-6.1-2 cd as the build OS.
I have read that there are some issues with the network chip on the
sony laptops having the "sleep mode" bit set. This may have
something to do with the issue.
