Tomasz Krysinski (tomcio(at)gic(dot)gov(dot)pl) reports a bug with a severity of 2
The lower the number the more severe it is.
pg_dumpall doesn't handle all it should
1. it doesn't handle alternate data dirs (just skips the WITH LOCATION statement in CREATE DATABASE). I know it's not the only thing required to recreate such database (a directory must be created and initlocation-ed), but silently skipping the problem doesn't seem to be a good idea.
2. nor does it handle different names for a C shared lib function and an SQL function (skips the C function name in CREATE FUNCTION) which results in failure to recreate when the names differ indeed.
(I suppose pg_dump does the same)
