Also, note that that message was the zero-day-security-problem response
to the issue, and that we since figured out cleaner responses.  If you
haven't yet implemented this in your own DBs, I would suggest following
the procedures given in the final release notes, eg
http://developer.postgresql.org/docs/postgres/release-7-4-8.html

I expect these notes will shortly show up in the static documentation, eg
http://www.postgresql.org/docs/7.4/static/release.html
but they aren't there yet as I set finger to keyboard.
