Hm. Based on an initial look those queries aren't planned with any of
the affected codepaths.  Could this primarily be a question of
randomness? Would it perhaps make sense to run the tests in a comparable
order? Looking at tpcds.py and the output files, it seems that the query
order differes between the runs, that can easily explain bigger
difference than the above. For me a scale=1 run creates a database of
approximately 4.5GB, thus with shared_buffers=1GB execution order is
likely to have a significant performance impact.
