Yes, I think that should solve the bug reported here. Did you check? What makes me rather worried about solely using this as a solution right now is the InRecovery check, which triggers segment extensions/creations even with EXTENSION_RETURN_NULL. Afaics it's more or less a dormant bug that _mdfd_getseg() ignores RETURN_NULL in the InRecovery case, because mdopen() (and other places) do *not* behave that way! > Something like that is what I was thinking about, but I notice it has > the disadvantage of adding lseeks to cater to a shouldn't-happen > condition. Not sure if we should care. I'm not particularly concerned about that, my gues sit'd barely impact the number of lseeks, because most callers will have called mdnblocks() before anyway. > My attempts to test things were also singularly unrewarding.

Or not how to trigger such a test? Andres -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
