(working on the PL debugger...) It appears that the libraries listed in shared_preload_libraries will *not* be inherited by spawned backends on Win32 platforms.
Do we have to do something special to make that work? Using ProcessExplorer (from sysinternals.com), I can see that my plugins are loaded into the postmaster, but not into the individual backends. If I set local_preload_libraries equal to shared_preload_libraries, the plugins are loaded into the backends as expected (so it seems unlikely that I have a pathname or permissions problem). Should we just call process_shared_preload_libraries() after calling read_nondefault_variables() (in SubPostmasterMain())? -- Korry -- Korry Douglas [EMAIL PROTECTED] EnterpriseDB http://www.enterprisedb.com
