on python 2.4 beta 2:
Python 2.4b2 (#1, Nov 10 2004, 15:22:25) [C] on 

on an HP Tru64 OSF5.1b system,
test_subprocess fails for an assertion error that 
suggests that python doesn't understand the means 
that this OS uses to implement clusters.  The test fails 
on both clustered and unclustered boxes.

As yet, this failure does not impact us.  Low priority for 

Note that tru64 expands {memb} to a cluster node 
member0 means a single-node unclustered system.
our other tru64 system is clusters, and expands {memb} 
to member1 and member2 for the two nodes.

I think I've been able to fix this in revision 1.14 of I don't have access to a Tru64 system,
though. Please reopen this bug if the problem still exists.
