Yes, the existing assertion is right. My point is that it is strange that we do not check the values of freeze parameters for an ANALYZE query, which should be set to -1 all the time. If this is thought as not worth checking, I'll drop this patch and my concerns. -- Michael -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
