The child_process test has a wrong import - changing var Future = require('fibers/future'); to var Future = require('../future'); should do it.

stack-overflow2 was added since the last release and might not be intended to work at the moment.

I am not a collaborator, so don't take my work for it, I just hit these problems some time ago.

Obviously, these should be fixed somehow, but I don't think there's a reason to worry about them.


My apologies, in the previous comment I was referring to future-exception failing, not child_process.

At one point I had two tests failing: future-exception and stack-overflow2 and hence the confusion.


All test should pass now.
