I have no objection to disabling the geometry tests by default for 7.2 and
7.3. I think you're right to suggest that fixing them is not worth the
Note that because of the way the buildfarm script works, this failure was
masking the seg errno bogosity. Maybe I should reverse the test order to
make contrib before running and regression tests.
