Well, there were regression tests for blobs for a long time, but they carefully cleaned up their mess. It was only in 70ad7ed4e that we made them leave some blobs behind. I took a quick look at back-patching that commit, but the test would need to be rewritten to not depend on features that don't exist further back (like \gset), which likely explains why I didn't do it at the time. 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
