I just had a look at the reports and it seems we have several things
going on:

1) libpq gives additional information when not able to connect:
        could not connect to server: Connection refused (0x0000274D/10061)
   instead of just:
        could not connect to server: Connection refused

   Any idea?

2) Printf "%g" with a double high enough for an exponential output gives
   a difference in the exponent. This is due to Windows using three
   digits while the Unixes use just two, e.g. e+027 instead of e+27.

   This double stuff creates so many headaches that I wonder if we
   better not test it at all in the regression suite. Comments?

3) dt_test had to be killed. Judging from the logs it seems the program
   hang in either PGTYPESdate_from_asc() or PGTYPEStimestamp_from_asc().
   Could someone with a Windows/PostgreSQL setup run this test with
   debugging symbols and tell me where it hangs? It looks like an
   endless loop to me, but apparently nothing happens on other archs.

4) snake even stopped building the regression suite:
   testing sql/indicators.pgc                     ...  make[1]: ***   [check] 
Error 1
   make[1]: Leaving directory 
   make: *** [check] Error 2

   Was this killed manually too? Or did it stop on its own? I'm
   surprised there is no output explaning why it stops.
