I just want to say that the lack of diffing is somewhat by design.  
Almost always, a difference in behavior on one platform (out of at  
least 5 that are tested on a semi-regular basis) almost always  
indicates a JVM bug, and should be addressed by the JVM vendor.

I admit, though, it would be nice to have a way to skip tests by  
os.name with a property, something along the lines of  
skipifos.name=SunOS, for situations like this.
