Presumably what is happening is that the planner is switching from hash
to sort aggregation.  We could force the plan choice via enable_hashagg,
which seems OK from the standpoint that this is only meant to test psql
not the backend.  However, I'm dubious of the entire project.  I think
if you push the value of work_mem a bit further in either direction,
you will find other tests falling over.  I'm not excited about changing
this one just because it's currently the first to fail.
