If I perform the query using pgadmin I get the same result in both versions 7.4 and version 8.3.
In fact I have written two test applications that perform the same query, one using the synchronous command processing (PQexec) an one using the asynchronous Command Processing (PQsendQuery / PQconsumeInput / PQisBusy / PQgetResult) and the results are:
-> synchronous command processing takes less than two seconds to retrieve the result.
-> asynchronous command processing takes more than 120 seconds to retrieve the result.
Both applications are connecting to the same DB so I don't know why I am getting different results. Well I know that PQIsBusy is returning true so I am not executing PQgetResult.
