Finally, here is the patch: * Create the signal pipe in the postmaster and then inherit it into the child * Duplicate sockets using WSADuplicateSocket/WSASocket to get around buggy LSP implementations. From my testing this does not solve *all* problems, but it does solve a lot of them. * Change pgstat so it signals the collector when the bufferer terminates. Because some LSPs are still broken and process termination just won't work when the pipe goes away. * Clean up handling of the backend parameter file some. There was no error checking at all in large parts of it before, which bit me during testing, so I figured I might as well take a stab at that. This moves it all into a structure and writes that one - which is also preparation for the move of the parameter structure away from a file and into shared memory.
If this is accepted I also plan to do a patch to split out the forkexec code into a separate file and try to clean up the dependencies a bit further. It'd be nice if I could get that into 8.0.0 (which would probably mean this beta, since it seems to be the last one), but it's not critical. I'd also like to take a look at moving the parameter file into shared memory at least on win32, since it gives thefilesystem quite a bit of trashing. I think that can be done pretty easily, but I'm not sure if there'll be tinme for that in 8.0.0 either. //Magnus
