Jeepers. I'd rather not do that. From your report, this problem has been around for years. Yet, as far as I know, it's bothering very few real users, some of whom might be far more bothered by the postmaster suddenly failing to start. I'm fine with a FATAL in master, but I'd vote against doing anything that might prevent startup in the back-branches without more compelling justification. -- 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
