I supplied the relevant information in comment #3. I would be happy if you
could provide information about the system where the tests succeed or better
specific requirements for the system if available.

Testing on a Gentoo notebook I use for travelling...

SKIP    chown (Can't chown (probably need root))
SKIP    devices (Rsync needs root/fakeroot for device tests)

The skips are good as root isn't available and the overall check now succeeds.
I don't know whether it's because of 3.1.1pre1 or because of the environment,

With 'fakeroot' package installed, all tests with 3.1.1pre1 on the gentoo box
Gentoo pass. Please keep the bug open until I verify it on on other systems as
well. I'll supply the information ASAP and will close the bug if it works for
