Sounds good to me. I just ran the tests on Windows x86 and I see 81 
failures and 43 errors. The vast majority are JDWP tests (known and I 
have raised JIRAs for them - I don't think these should hold up 6.0M1) 
and TreeMap tests (71 failures and 18 errors).

The cause of the TreeMap failures is not obvious (could be differences 
between Java 5 and 6 spec that the tests are not reflecting?), but since 
they seem centralised and all the other classlib tests seem in good 
shape, I would be willing to have a JIRA raised for these with a target 
of fixing them for 6.0M2 and go ahead with the milestone.

Does anyone see these same failures/agree?
