I don't know if it's related, but coverity just started picking up a use-after-free in parse_value() in guc.c. At the end of the switch (case PGC_STRING) there's a free(newval) followed by an assignment of newval to retval->stringval a few lines further down. They mark it as line 3956 of revision 1.335. It may not be possible though, coverity is not omnicient. Hope this helps, -- Martijn van Oosterhout <email@example.com> http://svana.org/kleptog/ > From each according to his ability.
