Hm.  This failure presumably started with commit f13ea95f9, which
introduced use of command_like() in the pg_ctl TAP test; but that
didn't go in until 2017-06-28.  Was jacana not running in the

Anyway, if we believe that it broke with f13ea95f9, hen it's plausible
that CMD.EXE has been sharing pg_ctl's stdout/stderr all along, and we
just had not noticed before.  Could you check what happens if we
