No.  It's a testsuite bug.  Failures should be expected for all
hppa*-*-* except hppa*-*-linux* and hppa*-*-netbsd*.  ie. it's
expected to fail for hppa targets that define LABELS_WITHOUT_COLONS.
Please go ahead and fix it.

Contrary to what I said about this test at the end of last year,
I now believe Jeff was correct in changing linesepbug.s, as it
appears that with HP assemblers you can only define a lable in
the first column of a line;  Using a line separator doesn't put
you back in the expecting-label-state as it does in gas.
