Yeah, we've been bitten before by changes that seemed OK when run without force_parallel_mode but misbehaved with that option, so it would be nice to improve things. Now, I'm not totally convinced that just adding a test around blessed tupledescs is really going to help very much - that option exercises a lot of code, and this is only one relatively small bit of it. But I'm certainly not objecting to the idea. -- Robert Haas EnterpriseDB: http://www.enterprisedb.com The Enterprise PostgreSQL Company -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
