Perl 5.8.6 to 5.8.7 upgrade fails IPC tests

I'm having a little trouble with my perl upgrade from 5.8.6 to 5.8.7.

The build goes ok, but when I run 'make test' I get two failures.

Both appear to be in the IPC code.  When running the failed tests by
hand, I get the following:

# ./perl ../ext/IPC/SysV/t/sem.t     
semget: 28 No space left on device
not ok 10
# ./perl ../ext/IPC/SysV/t/ipcsysv.t 
ok 1
ok 2
ok 3
ok 4
ok 5
ok 6
semget: No space left on device

I don't understand the error message.

Running all tests in the harness results as follows:

Failed Test                 Stat Wstat Total Fail  Failed  List of Failed
../ext/IPC/SysV/t/ipcsysv.t  255 65280    16   20 125.00%  7-16
../ext/IPC/SysV/t/sem.t       28  7168    10   10 100.00%  1-10
 (1 subtest UNEXPECTEDLY SUCCEEDED), 53 tests and 212 subtests skipped.
Failed 2/944 test scripts, 99.79% okay. 20/100430 subtests failed, 99.98% okay.

I have read through the 'make test' section in the INSTALL file, and I
have set the LC_ALL environment variable, but as I expected that
doesn't affect these particular tests.

Any ideas?
