Worked like a charm!

Seemed to be a timeout issue, mak check waited to short for this test to 
finish (maybe due to reiserfs filesystem or high system load/old 
machine). Made a small change to the source of the test, and it worked!

Changed glibc-2.3.1/io/test-lfs.c from
/* We might need a bit longer timeout.  */
#define TIMEOUT 20 /* sec */


/* We might need a bit longer timeout.  */
#define TIMEOUT 60 /* sec */

Because 'make check' continues after the last failed test, you need to 
do a 'make tests-clean' between two 'make check's to make sure a tests
are succesfull.

Still fails, see previous post for details. Does somebody know what's 
going wrong?
