There is a test in privileges.sql (currently lines 589-625 in privileges.out) that seems to be dependent on the fact that the ArrayCoerceExpr logic doesn't check for EXECUTE privilege on the per-element type coercion function if it's dealing with a NULL input array.
While fooling with Andres' faster-expressions patch, I moved the pg_proc_aclcheck call for this into expression compilation, causing that privileges.sql test to fail. Since Andres' patch moves ACL checks for regular function calls into expression compilation, I think it would be weird and inconsistent not to do so for ArrayCoerceExpr as well. Does anyone want to defend this privileges test case as testing for some behavior that users expect? regards, tom lane -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
