  I think the small amount of available information on google for 
tst-clock2 failing suggests it isn't common (other than on i586).  I 
haven't seen it on my own machines, so I've no idea why it happens. 
I'll guess it's as likely to be a problem in the testsuite as a problem 
in the code being tested.

  In the absence of any follow-ups to the postings that google found, I'd 
be tempted to assume it isn't a showstopper.
