The previous applied GeoJson patch (r2842), fix this behaviour.

Yes, i've tryied with the 'terse' option, but even with short  
messages, text change
upon PostgreSQL versions (fews tests with 8.1, 8.2 and 8.3).

As this unit test is not really meaningfull (prototype function check  
is PostgreSQL job, not the
PostGIS function one), i've just decided to remove it.

An alternative would be to use tests cases upon PostgreSQL version in  
a geojson_expected.in
(quite similar than JTS checks for curves units tests)
