+1 for fixing this, but you have not handled the read side correctly.
pg_strtok doesn't promise to return a null-terminated string, so without
changes, readfuncs.c would not successfully decode a zero-byte char field.
Also it would do the wrong thing for any character code that outToken had
decided to prefix with a backslash. I think you could fix both problems
/* Read a char field (ie, one ascii character) */
#define READ_CHAR_FIELD(fldname) \
token = pg_strtok(&length); /* skip :fldname */ \
token = pg_strtok(&length); /* get field value */ \
- local_node->fldname = token
+ local_node->fldname = debackslash(token, length)
although that's annoyingly expensive for the normal case where no
special processing is needed. Maybe better
+ local_node->fldname = (length == 0) ? '\0' : (token == '\\') ?
token : token
