test513 failure on s390

I've run into a suspicious failure of test513 while trying to build
packages for s390:

I am trying to investigate what happens for several hours, no idea so far.
The failure appears only on s390 and only in test513. It's *almost* 100%
reproducible. I am completely puzzled and can't figure out how the test513
differs from other tests, which work just fine on the same system.

I compared the test logs of test513 on a working machine and s390. The only
difference is this:

--- log/check-expected 2009-12-03 13:20:44.000000000 -0500
+++ log/check-generated 2009-12-03 13:20:44.000000000 -0500

curl.log, server.input, stderr513 are the some in both cases.

How is the file "log/check-generated" actually generated?

If the file is generated from stderr513, then it looks like a perl bug to me.
But I still can't image how such a bug could be specific to test513.

Thanks in advance for any hints!
