FWIW, I remember this from back in the days when this was written. We kind
of expected this would be slow already back then, but couldn't find a
better way at the time either. And back then, I guess there were just
enough *other* things that were slow with pg-on-windows that it didn't
become as obvious.
So - +1 for changing the defaults as suggested.
What's our take on backpatching such changes? Should this be 9.6 only, or
