Same problem as on every other system, this is not a very portable
or robust way of testing the feedback system.

Due to library differences (or possibly to the handling of floats --
see below).

All of these generate incorrect output.   It appears as though the
various data packing optimizations PeterW implemented a while back
aren't working on this platform and/or with Mercury compiled ths way
I built it (see below).

Last few lines of the output are:

    [4, 71402]
    testing divide_by_set
    Uncaught Mercury exception:
    Software Error: tree_bitset: function `tree_bitset.enum_to_index'/1: Unexpected: enums must map to nonnegative integers

This seg faults.

When running this test we use ulimit -m, which doesn't appear to
be supported on Cygwin.

I'm pretty sure of that now!

For the record: the compiler running these tests was stage 2 of a fresh
checkout of the trunk.  (The original bootstrap compiler was
rotd-2012-07-15, installed directly from the source distribution.)
The C compiler was gcc 4.5.3.
