Hi all, I had my eyes on the WAL sender code this morning, and I have noticed that walsender.c is not completely consistent with the PID lookups it does in walsender.c. In two code paths, the PID value is checked without holding the WAL sender spin lock (WalSndRqstFileReload and pg_stat_get_wal_senders), which looks like a very bad idea contrary to what the new WalSndWaitStopping() does and what InitWalSenderSlot() is doing for ages.
Any thoughts about the patch attached to make things more consistent? It seems to me that having some safeguards would be nice for robustness. That's an old bug, so I am adding that to the next CF. Thanks, -- Michael
