I looked at CVS and the fix is in CVS head, but not in 7.3.X.

I applied it only to CVS head because I wasn't sure if were were
backpatching docs into CVS.  I was later told we were rebuilding 7.3.X
docs every night so we should backpatch docs.

Also, does anyone know why the development docs are 7.3.1?

	http://developer.postgresql.org/docs/postgres/index.html

Seems if it is on the developers page, it should be CVS head?  Wasn't
that supposed to build on demand?  I don't think that is working. 
Perhaps it took too much CPU.

The docs on my machine are based on CVS head and do build on demand:

	http://candle.pha.pa.us/main/writings/pgsql/sgml

Both links are on the developers page.

Is someone working to get 7.3.1 announced on our main web site?
