Actually, I ran derbyall with two unrelated failures on linux before 
committing. But I realize now what's happened.

We're a victim of a little strange subversion behaviour. Setting the 
svn:eol-style property on a file before committing it does *not* change 
the contents of the file in your local sandbox. So derbyall will run as 
before, regardless of the platform. 'svn diff' reports only a bunch of 
property changes on the files, but no actual content diffs.

Now, when the patch is *committed*, suddenly all the files' content 
changes. Thus, these failures were not caught before committing, but 
after. I'm sorry about the consequences for you all, and I'll go ahead 
and try to fix the issues.
