I attach patch which adds boundaries check and memory overwriting protection when compressed data are corrupted.

Good point. Is there plan to applied also on other branch?

I wasn't planning to back-patch it.  Given the lack of field reports
of compressed-data problems, it seemed to me that the risk of breaking
something was larger than the chance of helping someone.  We could
reconsider this after the code has been in HEAD awhile, perhaps.


one of our customer with 3TB table it uses now in production (8.2) awhile (2 weeks) and it works pretty well. He had a corrupted data in TOASTed table and now his system is stable without random crashes. I plan to use this patch in official Solaris build, but I prefer do not have differences between main stream and solaris binaries. Would be possible to backported this patch?

                Thanks Zdenek
