In principle, we could have the postmaster run through $PGDATA/pg_tblspc and drop a lockfile into each referenced directory. But the devil is in the details --- in particular, not sure how to get the right thing to happen during a CREATE TABLESPACE. Also, I kinda doubt that this is going to fix anything for the replica-on-same-machine problem. 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
