Right, that version number exists mostly for the benefit of pg_controldata and allied utilities. You would get a CRC failure in any case when trying to go between inconsistent notions of what pg_control contains, but the version number is supposed to help you figure out why that happened. As things stand, though, it'd only mislead you. regards, tom lane -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
