I think a lot of these could be fixed without marking them as random (essentially disabling the test). E.g. for
sage: B.is_hermitian(algorithm='naive', tol=1.0e-17)
we could try increasing the tolerance, and for the sign issues, we could write
G.round(6) * sgn(G[0,0])
to force the top-left entry to be positive.

Doesn't work. On OS X 10.7, the matrix actually is Hermitian to infinite precision.
G.round(6) * sgn(G[0,0])to force the top-left entry to be positive.
Doesn't work either, since you would have to do this on a row-by-row or column-by-column basis for the Gram Schmidt tests. I think this would make things too complicated. Besides, the important thing to check are the defining properties of the Gram-Schmidt reduction, which is checked in these doctests.

Looks good to me, and passes doctests on several platforms (despite what the patchbot thinks).
