Thanks Bruce for replying.

The ACL is display in the PgAdmin tool for Windows on the properties for a
table or function. ACL is the Privileges. By default, when you create a new
function or table, the ACL is null. However, if you add some privileges, and
then remove all, the ACL is not longer null, it displays the brackets {}.

I just need to know if the brackets are normal when all the privileges are
remove. Or how to reset the privileges (ACL) to default (null).

Well, if I create a table and look at pg_dump,  I see:

	ALTER TABLE public.test OWNER TO postgres;

and the owner has permissions by default on the table.  Perhaps you want
to revoke owner permissions on the table.

Where are you seeing this ACL?
