Oops. > I've attached a patch which fixes this. I've committed this patch. I wonder if it's going to produce compiler warnings for some people, complaining about possible use of an uninitialized variable. That would kind of suck. I don't much mind having to insert a dummy assignment to shut the compiler up; a smarter compiler will just throw it out anyway. I'm less enthused about a dummy MemSet. The compiler is less likely to be able to get rid of that, and it's more expensive if it doesn't.

The direct arguments would be evaluated in the worker, but not in the leader, right?

I'm kinda tempted to say this should be using an enum. I note that serialStates has a subtly different meaning here than in some other places where you have used the same term. -- Robert Haas EnterpriseDB: http://www.enterprisedb.com The Enterprise PostgreSQL Company -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
