When I run 'make check' on the CVS version (today and for the last
serveral days),  I have been getting interesting failures.  Some of the
tests fail,  but the interesting part is that not the same tests always
fail.  Example:

bpalmer(at)mizer:~/APPS/pgsql>diff 1 2
1c1
<      boolean              ... FAILED
---
>      boolean              ... ok
3c3
<      name                 ... ok
---
>      name                 ... FAILED
5c5
<      text                 ... FAILED
---
>      text                 ... ok
9,10c9,10
<      oid                  ... FAILED
<      float4               ... ok
---
>      oid                  ... ok
>      float4               ... FAILED

In the regression.diff file,  I keep seeing this:

*** ./expected/name.out Tue Jan  4 11:19:34 2000
--- ./results/name.out  Sat Jan  6 16:36:34 2001
***************
*** 1,124 ****

! -- all inputs are silently truncated at NAMEDATALEN (32) characters

!  True
! ------
...
...
...
! (2 rows)
!
! DROP TABLE NAME_TBL;
--- 1 ----
! psql: Backend startup failed

======================================================================

Any ideas where to look for this one?

When I run the regression test WITH ANOTHER INSTANCE OF PGSQL running,  I
got an error telling me that I needed more SEMMNI or SEMMNS.  I recompiled
my kernel with the values of 1024 and 2048 respectivly, and that seems to
have solved the problem,  but they may still be related.

Any ideas?
