$ pg_dump regression >zzz.out
pg_dump: SQL command failed
pg_dump: Error message from server: ERROR:  "complex" is a composite type
pg_dump: The command was: COPY public.complex (r, i) TO stdout;

That could be fixed by just checking the relkind when dumping table data, but hey.

I suspect it had more subtle problems too, because dumpTableComments
would have attached the comments to the dumpid associated with the
TableInfo entry, which isn't the object that will get dumped.  So it
seems moderately likely that there would have been a potential for
misordering of the output.


I think it's probably a fundamentally bad idea to be putting composite
types into pg_dump's TableInfo array, because they just really aren't
tables at all.  If you want to try again, I'd suggest writing a variant
of dumpTableComment that takes a TypeInfo and the attribute-names query
data obtained by dumpCompositeType.

You mean unlike views, sequences and all other kinds of junk? :)

OK, I can do this, but I don't think I'll have time for the first beta.


ps. Did you back out the moving of owner to commands as well?
