Hi.

The session search_path is lost after a failed transaction, using SQL
embedded in C, pre-processed by ecpg without -t. I'm running Postgresql
8.2.11, as packaged by Ubuntu for Ubuntu 7.10 (8.2.11-0ubuntu0.7.10).
Kernel is 2.6.25.13.

I don't subscribe to this list so please copy me in replies.

    ecpg implicitly runs everything inside transactions. You don't need to
    run START TRANSACTION, that's implicit. Therefore the "set search_path"
    command is in fact run in the same transaction as the failing insert, as
    also hinted by the warning "there is already a transaction in progress"
    at the START TRANSACTION command.

    You could use -t, or add a COMMIT after the "set search_path".

    Thanks for your reply. Committing after setting search_path does
    resolve this problem. It surprises me that a session parameter is
    treated in this way.
