Hmm. That would have semantics rather substantially different from the way that the WL_POSTMASTER_DEATH code behaves. But I don't know how much we care about that, since the whole scenario is something that should not happen under normal circumstances. Maybe cross-platform variation is OK as long as it doesn't make the code too hairy. regards, tom lane -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
