I also did some analysis as Andres suggested and observed that since the error message is already sent by backend to frontend, so error message is available on connection channel just that is was not received/processed by frontend. Also pqHandleSendFailure was checking the available data if any but it was ignored to process. So as Andres suggested above, if we add parseInput to receiver and parse the available message on connection channel, we could display appropriate error. IMHO above proposed place to add parseInput seems to be right, as already this function takes of handling " NOTICE message that the backend might have sent just before it died " Attached is the patch with this change. Comments? Thanks and Regards, Kumar Rajeev Rastogi
