Thought you might like to know, Tom, with Cristian's glibc2-2.0.7 rpm I
downloaded yesterday, I was able to get:

mydb=> select '1 min'::timespan;
?column?
--------
@ 1 min
(1 row)

And all time-related regression tests succeeded.

That was with gcc-2.7.2.3, (-O3 -m486), _however_, when compiled with
gcc-2.8.0 (-O3 -mpentium), all that nasty time stuff just crept back again,
don't know why.

BTW, something I'm a bit concerned about -- re: the ``~30 sec deficit'' in
regression test timing results you mentioned a couple of days ago -- I'm also
seeing it here between the official 6.3 and a Feb-15 snapshot (no, LOCALE's
always undef) on both Linux and FreeBSD, and can consistently reproduce it,
with the same test suite (the one from the official 6.3).

And thanks for the docs!
