Not entirely, some of the problems were due to irrelevant -ansi -pedantic
moaning, (which are the default test compiler flags).

eh990323-1.C failed to compile due to calling `void g(void)' as
`g(A<char*>())'. Once `void g(int)' is substituted, the test passes. (the test
is about template temporary cleanups).
ice990323-1.C - yes, it now correctly errors
ice990323-2.C - would not compile as main was defined `main()' not `int
main()'. Once changed it passes.
ice990323-3.C - now correctly errors, it needed /ERROR marks
ice990323-4.C - ditto
ice990323-5.C - ditto
