I don't really see how somebody could validly depend on the old behaviour, given it always was windows only, and there only with nonblocking sockets. Seems more likely to be an undiscovered bug for such a hyptothetical user. I also think there's rather few drivers / clients actually shutting down sockets. Here it AFAICS really was a more or less unintentional side effect. -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
