> With these patches applied, the following regression tests fail:

> - char, varchar, select_implicit, select_having: These fail only when
> locale is enabled, due to a bug in the Digital Unix locale libraries. This

> 
> - abstime, tinterval, horology: These fail with dates that belong to year
> 1947: the time zone shown for these dates is PDT, instead of the expected
> PST. It might be due to a bug in the time zone handling, but I don't know
> wether the bug could lie in Digital Unix or the reference platform.
> Anyway, all the time-related types seem to be pretty usable.
