pgAdmin won't fail - though it will probably not offer you
backup/restore options.

pg_dumpall will fail in PostgreSQL though, as might any cron jobs oyu
have calling pg_dump.

One workaround that should work would be to create a shell script called
that echoes the same text as output from 'pg_dump --version' and point
pgAdmin's PostgreSQL Bin Dir config option (under File -> Options) to
the directory containing the script. That should fool pgAdmin into using
the shell script for backups (which won't work, but won't hang either),
which will cause it to leave the real pg_dump alone.

Regards, Dave.
