Pushed this. Feel free to tinker further with it, if you feel the need to. Regarding backpatching the clearing of shared memory, I'm inclined not to. If there is a real security concern there (I'm unsure what attack are we protecting against), it may be better fixed by the approach suggested by Fujii whereby the sensitive info is not ever published in shared memory. -- Álvaro Herrera http://www.2ndQuadrant.com/ PostgreSQL Development, 24x7 Support, Remote DBA, Training & Services -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
