AFAICT the regression is in Cygwin. The buildfarm passes because it's

which issue ?
During my package tests I have only two issues:

     tsearch                  ... FAILED
    test: prepared_xacts
must be skipped as it never completes

Those two issues need to be fixed. And yes, they are regressions from my
Cygwin 1.7.7 setup where they pass consistently, just about every day.
See <http://www.pgbuildfarm.org/cgi-bin/show_history.pl?nm=brolga&br=HEAD>

1.7.7 is 3.5 years hold.
In the mean time we added 64 bit and moved to gcc-4.8.x

You don't get to choose which regression tests you're going to pass and
which you're not. Disabling the tests or providing nonsensical results
files are unacceptable. This is a Cygwin behavior issue and needs to be

Distributing broken binary that crashes after standard rebase, it is also not acceptable and it is also worst.
Your farm is not testing this case, I presume.

Until I took over there was NO recent cygwin package at all in
the distribution, so do not complain that my binary is not perfect,
I already know, but for me almost working is better than NOT available or BROKEN.



I am available to work on tests regression, but I am not a postgresql
expert so do not expect all the job from my side.
