The problem with this is that we have another Cygwin member on buildfarm
which passes the tests happily, and will thus presumably fail if we make
this patch. You are running Cygwin 1.5.21 and the other buildfarm member
is running 1.5.19, so that is possibly the difference.

This is indeed a problem.   It would be difficult or even impossible to
use different expected results for different versions of cygwin.

Maybe we need to abandon trying to map float8 results exactly in the
resultmap file, and just let pg_regress pick the best fit as we do with
some other tests.

Oh, is it possible to do that?  That sounds great.  Which other tests
work like that?
