Ah, that'd be it. I spent some time debugging last night, and I'd realised the
problem lay in the fact that the preproc was outputting NULL as the
connection name, but was unsure why. Your changes allowed both threads to
complete their inserts, which is great news for us!
I'll add that "AT" clause to my list of updates for the documentation - it
might be important. It's kinda.... absent... from the manual.
I might also add a section on using pthreads with ECPG, since people porting
from Informix or Sybase might require such info up front.

That'd be great if you could... there appears to still be a problem occurring
at "EXEC SQL DISCONNECT con_name". I'll look into it tonight if I can.
All this does kinda raise the interesting question of why it worked at all on
FreeBSD... probably different scheduling and blind luck, I suppose.
Thanks for the reponse - I'm a happy man. By 7.4, we should be able to start
porting our apps to Postgres in earnest.
