Oh, if it's by design then the "pg_dump --help" text should be updated correspondingly. The online doco is already correct.

We are trying to do an "all tables" dump using the 7.3.3 pg_dump, but are getting no love. The pg_dump command which worked before, in 7.2, no longer returns any tables:
pg_dump -t "*" dbname
Is this by design, or by accident?

By design. Just omit the -t switch if you want all tables.

("*" is a legal table name, if perhaps not a very bright choice, so the
old behavior was really not consistent.)
