Actually, there's a way this can happen. If you create two (or more) views with circular dependencies between them, then pg_dump will emit commands to create one of them as a table first, then create the others as views, then convert the first table to a view by adding a _SELECT rule to it. If pg_upgrade's logic can't cope with that, that's a bug in pg_upgrade, because there's no other way to restore views with circular dependency chains. -- Robert Haas EnterpriseDB: http://www.enterprisedb.com The Enterprise PostgreSQL Company -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
