Core dump when connecting to database

Pgsql Users,

I get the following message when trying to connect to database using psql or
the ODBC driver.

Connection to database 'warehouse' failed.
pqReadData() -- backend closed the channel unexpectedly.
        This probably means the backend terminated abnormally
        before or while processing the request.

and also a core dump in the 'warehouse' database directory. I can connect to
other databases normally.

I think the problem started when an admin user was creating a new view & had
trouble.

Can anyone help me with the syntax to get the postmaster to log more
information on the error to a file?

Is there any other way to get in & try to identify & fix the problems?

Thanks for any help you can give me,

Steve Shaffer
