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 unavailable 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.
