Potentially, yes. The strxfrm() inconsistency issue disproportionately affected de_DE.utf8, for example. There were other locales that were affected less severely, and I think the majority were not shown to be affected at all. That being said, it probably wouldn't have caught that particular issue if we had broad coverage. It probably would catch a broken test, though. -- Peter Geoghegan -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
