Short Description
Strange CREATE VIEW behavior??

Long Description
createdb test
psql test

test=# create table zz(ss int, ff varchar);
test=# create view ff2 as select ff as user, ss as num from zz;
test=# create view ff3 as select ff as user1, ss as num from zz;
test=# \d ff2
               View "ff2"
 Attribute |       Type        | Modifier
 user      | character varying |
 num       | integer           |
View definition: SELECT zz.ff AS "user", AS num FROM zz;

test=# \d ff3
                View "ff3"
 Attribute |       Type        | Modifier
 user1     | character varying |
 num       | integer           |
View definition: SELECT zz.ff AS user1, AS num FROM zz;

Why in the first case column has name "user" (with '"') ?
