Bug reference:      5959
Logged by:          Per-Olov Esgard
Email address:      Per-Olov(dot)Esgard(at)micronic-mydata(dot)com
PostgreSQL version: 9.0.0
Operating system:   Linux / kernel 2.6.16.20
Description:        pg_restore --use-list  does not always work with a
pg_restore generated TOC file
Details: 

General
=======
In my application I am using automatically generated psm:s. These psm: are
using many arguments, in some cases over 80. This means that a TOC entry in
a TOC file generated by pg_restore --list may be very long for psm:s with
such a long signature.

Specific
========
My backup system makes a schema dump to a file and a data dump to another
file. When performing a restore I create a TOC list from the schema dump by
using pg_restore on the schema dump file. I do some filtering on the TOC
file and then I restore it using pg_restore --use-list. This does not work
since some entries in the TOC file are more than 2000 characters long. The
function SortTocFromFile in pg_backup_archiver.c has a hard coded limitation
of 1024 characters for each row in the TOC file.

Temporary solution
==================
I have now solved this problem in my application by extending the buffer to
4096 characters and recompiled pg_restore.
