I've been thinking about that. It seems that the regression tests have
fairly poor coverage of use of typmod-bearing data types in general;
most of our tests of complicated queries tend to use "simple" datatypes like int or text. I don't have any immediate thoughts what to do about
that --- massive expansion of the tests doesn't seem justified --- but
this isn't the first bug we've hit in this area.  It's just a bit more
embarrassing than most :-(

What about the idea that's been floated in the past about a -- extensive mode for regression testing that would (generally) only be used by the build farm. That would mean others wouldn't have to suffer through extremely long make check's.

Or is there another reason not to expand the tests?
