Yeah, exactly: it passed, but did it pass for the right reason? If there's just two expected-files, it's likely not a big problem, but if you have a bunch it's something to worry about. I'm also wondering how come we had hash partitioning before and did not have this sort of problem. Is it just that we added a new test that's more sensitive to the details of the hashing (if so, could it be made less so)? Or is there actually more platform dependence now than before (and if so, why is that)? regards, tom lane
