OK. I have upgraded mingw and tried to compile. regression tests
passed. So I tested pg_restore on Windows and Linux.
$ createdb test
$ pgbench -i -s 1000 test
$ pg_dump -Fc test > out
$ createdb restore
$ pg_restore -d restore out
$ psql -c 'select max(aid) from accounts' restore
pg_restore was normally completed. Thank you for your great work. I wish
that the patch will be committed.
