I know, I get that same 1 failure in 7.4.1 on my Mac at work which is
(seemingly) identical to my Mac at home.  I just deleted my CVS repository
and then re-checked-out the whole thing, rebuilt it (no problems there, as
usual), and ran make check again.  This time I got 9 failures!

When I got the 5 failures with an unmodified CVS checkout earlier, I didn't
even bother to look at the diffs because I just accepted that as my baseline
(it is CVS, after all, and things are in flux).  But this time, a quick look
at the diffs showed lines like this in the regression diffs:

! psql: could not fork new process for connection: Resource temporarily

I then recalled that my Mac at work has all sorts of kernel params and
resource limits tweaked to make Postgres happier.  Just running "unlimit" in
my shell was all I needed to do to make "make check" work at home, and I got
the same old single geometry test failure (-0 vs. 0) both with and without
the patch.  Yay.
