Can you provide some evidence for that claim? I can believe "faster" but the rest sounds like wishful thinking. > I work in an environment, where servers are administered by people > with different user names and identical uid (0). I think what you have there is an incredibly badly-designed system that can be expected to break outside software (eg, Postgres). If we take this patch, what's to stop someone from complaining that we broke *their* badly-designed system that abuses the HOME variable? I'm pretty hesitant to touch code that's worked the same way for a decade or two on such a basis. regards, tom lane -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
