Description: Server crash when enabling custom_variable_classes
I found crash bug in custom_variable_classes work.
Test case simple:
start server with empty custom_variable_classes
Then add to config file:
custom_variable_classes = 'something' # list of custom
variable class names
something.location = 'ru'
And then perform
Ooops... you have no more working server (but client connections staying
Same crash with 9.0 and 9.1beta.
custom_variable_classes = 'qqqq'
and pg_reload_conf() do not crash server.
But after I added qqqq.location = 'ru' to config and perform second
pg_reload_conf() server crashed again.
The same happens if server started with just custom_variable_classes =
after I added qqqq.location = 'ru' and performend pg_reload_conf() server
However with both option enabled server start and work without any issues.
PS: it is exeptionally strange no one happen to be hit by that problem
