Hm.  I think the without_oid test is not showing that anything is broken;
what it's testing is whether a table with oids is physically bigger (more
pages) than one without oids but the same data.  It's not implausible
that your change results in the same number of tuples fitting onto a page
in both cases.  It'd be worth doing the math to make sure that makes
sense.  Not sure if there's an easy way to change the table schema so that
you get different physical sizes in both cases.

The other tests aren't showing any functional issue either AFAICS.
The change away from a nestloop plan in join.out is a bit annoying,
because IIRC that test is specifically intended to check nestloop
parameter management; but that just means the test is brittle.

No, they're not comprehensive, and no, we don't have more :-(
