I have no problem with using the HOME variable optionally. That is wide-spread practice. But I dispute what you describe as the "real problem". In Unix, users are identified by uids. The real problem, as I see it, is that you think you have multiple users but you actually don't. -- Peter Eisentraut 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
