[Test Type]: Application - configuration.
[Test]: Attempt to make use of the
local_preload_libraries option within postgresql.conf
[Platform]: SUN SPARC 4u Enterprise 450 Quad.
[Parameters]: attempt to use local_preload_libraries = /usr/local/lib/MyFavoriteLib.so. PG converts entire path to lowercase: /usr/local/lib/myfavoritelib.so.
[Results]: The Postgres binary converts the library name - in fact the entire pathname to the library - to lowercase. Attempt to connect to server using psql results in psql: FATAL: access to library " /usr/local/lib/myfavoritelib.so " is not allowed - even though permissions are 'permissive'.
[Comments]: (Whether our attempt to reference our preloaded library in this place is correct or not,) that the binary changes the directive to lower case seems odd.
