On the same topic, but a variation.
I use pgAdmin 1.4.2 and am a paranoid backer-upper, ie do it frequently, but
obviously have not been taking notice of the messages as they spin past.
When the database and its schema's have been open and I've been working on
them, I usally then just click on the database name, right mouse click >

off the machine.
I noticed yesterday that on occasions the title bar window was only showing
the name of either a schema, or even a single table, and to my horror I've
discovered I was often not getting a complete database dump.
Despite going back up and clicking the database name, right mouse up witih the
menu, choose _Backup etc, it was only copying a table or shema I'd previously
If I closed the connection and re-established it, then the squence works.
Am I doing anything wrong???
