After several fixes were backpatches to the 7_3_STABLE branch, we have now
released a 7.3.6.  As the list of Changes since 7.3.5 is quite small, they
are included in this email:

     * Revert erroneous changes in rule permissions checking
     * Repair incorrect order of operations in GetNewTransactionId()
     * Ensure configure selects -fno-strict-aliasing even when an
       external value for CFLAGS is supplied
     * Make pg_restore handle 64-bit off_t correctly
     * Make contrib/dblink not assume that local and remote type OIDs
       match (Joe)
     * Quote connectby()'s start_with argument properly (Joe)
     * Don't crash when a rowtype argument to a plpgsql function is NULL
     * Avoid generating invalid character encoding sequences in corner
       cases when planning LIKE operations
     * Ensure text_position() cannot scan past end of source string in
       multibyte cases (Korea PostgreSQL Users' Group)
     * Fix index optimization and selectivity estimates for LIKE
       operations on bytea columns (Joe)

This version, as with most minor versions, does not require a dump/reload
to put into place.

As always, this release is available on all our mirrors, viable at:
