Indeed. But it *is* also a problem the way it is now (I've noticed
myself a couple of times, but never had the time to fix it)
Perhaps a reasonable thing to do would be to have the shortcut point to
a .BAT file that does a "pause" only if psql exits with a non-zero
Is this reasonable? Will psql always exit with non-zero when something
like this happen and also importantly, willi t always exit with a zero
exitcode if there is no problem?
