022.phpt which tests gmp_gcdext() and gmp_nextprime.phpt which tests gmp_nextprime() fail on Windows but pass on Linux.
The returned value of both of those functions in some cases doesn’t match the expected value(in some cases it does).
In example #1 in the documentation for gmp_nextprime() (, gmp_nextprime(-1000) returns -997  however on Linux it returns 2, which is what the test expects so the test passes. 

Not only is this a behavior difference between Windows and Linux but is not what the documentation states ( gmp_nextprime(-1000) => -997 not 2).

I'm using this snippet to test on both Windows and Linux

#include <gmp.h>

int main (void) {

	mpz_t p;

	mpz_init_set_str(p, "-1000", 10);

	mpz_nextprime(p, p);
	gmp_printf("mpz_nextprime : %Zd\n", p);

	return 0;

It looks like the correct answer is 2, on both windows mpir 2.5.1 and 2.6.0 and 
linux with 
gmp. The tests are also pass now, the doc is wrong.

This bug has been fixed in the documentation's XML sources. Since the
online and downloadable versions of the documentation need some time
to get updated, we would like to ask you to be a bit patient.

Thank you for the report, and for helping us make our documentation better.
