Kenneth intended to temporarily disable the failing tests: <http://trac.webkit.org/changeset/56093

there is still a great number of failures on SnowLeopard release.  I'm  
not sure what we can do other than revert the patch until the correct  
fix is ready.

It seems like the problem is just that Linux ports are failing the new  
test cases added by that patch. The actual code changes only affect  
the Mac port. I think the appropriate action would be to skip the two  
new tests and/or land platform-specific results on platforms where  
they are failing.
