Doh ... the question though is why are you getting different results
from everybody else?  There are other cygwin machines in the buildfarm
and they are all passing regression --- I suppose they'd start failing
if we remove that resultmap entry.

The regular float8 result is certainly "more correct" than
float8-small-is-zero, so I'm all for removing the resultmap entry
if we can do it.  But we'd need to be able to explain to people how
to get their machines to pass, and right now I don't know what to say.
