Postgres Support,


I have been trying to start psql demodb database that I created and every
time I get a core dump..

initdb and createdb worked just fine.

When I attempt   psql demodb  I get a core dump .. ( NOT GOOD )
Please review output below.

I have also included a core dump using gdb.

I'm using solaris 8 update 5

  Solaris 8 7/01 s28s_u5wos_08 SPARC
  
  Trying to run on a 4500 and 3500 servers.
