Yes. Looks like the low-order bits of a CIDR address are garbage,
but network_cmp() compares them as though all bits are significant.
So, indeed, it may think two different instances of '1.2.3/24'
are not equal.
The regular inet comparison functions at least *try* to mask out
garbage bits, but I think they get it wrong too --- they should be
taking the smaller of ip_bits(a1) and ip_bits(a2) as the number of
bits to compare. They don't. Thus, for example,
regression=> select '1.2.5/16'::cidr < '1.2.3/24'::cidr;
which looks wrong to me.
In short, it's a bug in the inet data types, not a generic problem
with unique indexes.
