Nice thought, so after trying suggestions inspired by Jan and Brad
(commenting out IPv6 hosts in /etc/hosts, monkeying with hostname), I
built R12B-2 from source (a couple of minor little errors in makefiles
along the way), and as near as I can tell I have solved the
problem...all 18 tests in the Test Suite passed.

For sake of reference, the actual build/install complaints on Debian
Etch for Erlang R12B-2 were (IIRC):

(a) during "make": the "ebin" directory in "lib/common_test" may have to

whatever the latest version is) on Etch and let people know how that is
