No. It does ereport(FATAL) which terminates the backend. > As I mentioned previously after it happens others connections > were hung on update operations.

Doesn't the postmaster restart all other backends due to the FATAL error? Are you saying that you can no longer make new connections to the server, or is the problem coming from that the aplpication doesn't like that the server kicked out all connections? If you can produce a self-contained test-case, that would certainly make debugging a lot easier. So if it's possible - but I realise that might not be easy for a problem like this :-) //Magnus ---------------------------(end of broadcast)--------------------------- TIP 5: don't forget to increase your free space map settings
