Kristofer Munn (kmunn(at)munn(dot)com) reports a bug with a severity of 2
The lower the number the more severe it is.

Short Description
RULE on INSERT unable to access NEW serial value anymore

Long Description
Enclosed is example code that behaves differently on versions 7.1.3 and 7.2.3 with a loss of functionality in the latter version.

The purpose of the rule is to record the insertion of rows into table tblData recording the new record id (comes from a sequence) and the id of the user that inserted the row.  In version 7.1.3, the ids are recorded (from new.id).  In version 7.2.3, only a null is recorded.  Hopefully this is enough data to demonstrate the problem - if not please feel free to contact me for additional information.

Here are the results of two runs with the output from the successful drop & create commands omitted and the timestamps shortened for readability:
