Kill -9 Postmaster and Temporary Tables

Hi @ all,

I'v noticed if you kill -9 the Postmaster Temporary Tables (Shemas) will stay in the DB.
Also a VACUUM FULL will not remove them after restart. If the server craches (no power) its the same (I'v noticed it here)

Daniel.

TIP 9: the planner will ignore your desire to choose an index scan if your
joining column's datatypes do not match

That is a bad thing to do in any case ;-)

But yeah, they'll stay around. In 7.3 and later, they will get cleaned
out eventually (whenever someone next uses the same temp schema).

TIP 2: you can get off all lists at once with the unregister command
(send "unregister YourEmailAddressHere" to ma*******@postgresql.org)
