I didn't actually check closely but I wondered whether the pointer arithmetic is actually correct. Note that the memcpy length is zero. I doubt malloc returning null is the problem; how could it happen exactly at the same spot every time the suite has run? > I don't know off-hand why you see that problem starting at this commit > and not before, or why it doesn't show up on other machines. Perhaps it's only a problem for OpenBSD's libc and not for glibc which is the most common. The only other openbsd machine in buildfarm doesn't run the isolation tests. -- Álvaro Herrera http://www.2ndQuadrant.com/ PostgreSQL Development, 24x7 Support, Remote DBA, Training & Services -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
