Bug reference:      2927
Logged by:          Jaume Catarineu
Email address:      jaume(at)nobainfo(dot)net
PostgreSQL version: 8.2.1
Operating system:   Linux srvca01 #1 SMP Wed Mar 23

Description:        Trigger execution hides foreign key error

When a table has a foreign key field if you insert values that violate that
check an error appears:

ERROR:  insert or update on table "m_tran" violates foreign key constraint

That's ok, but when a INSERT trigger is added to that table, the precedent
insert order productes the following output:


And no error appears anywhere: neither in the log nor the psql console.
Shouldn't PostgreSQL inform someway why it's not going to insert that row?

It seems like the correct trigger execution was hidding the previous
incorrect foreign key check. Is that way?
