We had major problems after migrating the DB to a more powerful server; we
managed to locate the problem to a type conversion bug in our software.
Never the less, this thing puzzles us a lot:
NBTEST2=# select '-1'>'0';
We've tried this query on several servers with different versions of
postgresql and different versions of glibc - some returns true, others
returns false - and it seems neither to be related to the postgresql version
nor the glibc version. At all servers we tested, strcmp("-1","0") returned
negative - at some -3 and at others -1, and not related to postgresql.
The correct result above should be false, since ascii('-')=45 while
Can the character set in use be significant?
