Which test are you running?
All of the tests in the func/ directory worked before the last round of my dissertation hacking. It may be that some were damaged by the last round of changes, but I have no reason to think so. One thing that *did* change is that the compiler got upgraded, and the latest one checks the return type of main. IBM was being itchy about letting me modify the code, so I was forced to touch as little as possible.

This is a diagnostic from the test that confirms that the metaconstructor is behaving correctly. When you get the debugger prompt, type 'c' to continue. Alternatively, build the SMALL kernel to simply omit the kernel debugger.

Alternatively, depending on which version of Linux you are running, it may suffice to add yourself to group 'floppy' in /etc/group. This won't take effect until you log back in.
