Hi,

I can't get the scalac stability tests to pass. They report
differences in over 1000 files..

Is there a guide on how to run the test suite?

What are likely causes of stability test failures?

Hints on where to begin researching?

Thanks,

Jordi.

Re: Scalac tests
You probably need to clean locker.  Try ant locker.clean then run the tests.
Likely cause is that locker compiles once and then not gain until you force it.   This means the compiler you're using is 'stale' and changes to scala can cause binary instabilities.
