I ran into an interesting problem with a customer today. They are running Jabber XCP (not the one we use). Unfortunately, the product has a bug that causes it to leave connections persistent in a transaction state. This is what it does:


Basically it is verifying that the connection is live. However, it never calls commit. So what happens? We can't vacuum ;).

Anyway, my thought is, we know when a transaction is idle, why not have an idle timeout where we will explicitly close the connection or rollback or something? User configurable of course.
