Works perfectly. I did need to artificially create pg_clog segments.

Other than running "select now()" 2^31 times, is there a practical way to raise the transactionID by large amounts?Shut down postmaster, use pg_resetxlog to set NextXID to whatever you want, restart and test. You might need to artificially create pg_clog and pg_subtrans segments matching the chosen starting point, but other than that there's not a lot of memory of latest XID in the system. Bumping it by more than 2G-less-reasonable-safety-margin is unfair of course ... regards, tom lane
