     I would vote for this one, as it would also explain my unability to
     reproduce the failure and it's . When i compare my own build logs
     (pbuilder) with those from Debian's autobuilder network the build
     directory path is quite longer:

Could you try running your autobuilder within a very long pathname, to see if 
it provokes the problem.  If it does, then we'll at least have some confidence
that it really is the problem.
     But i don't see how we can do something much shorter as most of the path
     comes from the autobuilders itself and they surely won't let us touch
     them ;) But couldn't you use a relative path when calling postgres?

I'm not sure that a relative path would work, since it has to be used by 
processes which do not necessarily share the same current directory.

     Probably, but this might be a bigger undertaking, because even if it is
     a bug over there we need a new version in Debian and also in every
     derivat before we can work further on PSPP. Therefore i would prefer a
     change in the testsuite, so we're more independent and faster on finally
     getting a proper package in Debian.

I meant "help" by way of advice and suggestions. Not necessarily by hacking the
server to suit us.
