I have CentOS 5.4, x86_64, kernel 2.6.18-164.11.1.el5

  rake compile
  ruby -I .:lib:tests/ tests/test_epoll.rb

Works for me on an unpacked eventmachine-1.0.0.beta.3 tree with
ruby_1_9_3 branch.  However, only 2 tests appeared enabled.

Yes, unable to reproduce on a more modern Debian testing machine
(x86_64)

I'll try to find a machine closer to the above.
