Ah, I also noticed that the ALTER EXTENSION and SECURITY LABEL commands use ShareUpdateExclusiveLock, and they failed when committed to note this in the 13.3 chapter of the docs. Not sure how strict we are about documenting these things. (I note COMMENT already fails to document its ShareUpdExcl lock). -- Álvaro Herrera <alvhe...@commandprompt.com> The PostgreSQL Company - Command Prompt, Inc.
