Can anyone else duplicate this?  I don't see it on my available boxes
(7.0.2 and current on HPUX and an old Linux box).  The test program
is pretty trivial, see attached.

			regards, tom lane

 * loOid2.c
 *	  test creation of many large objects 
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <fcntl.h>
#include <unistd.h>
#include "libpq-fe.h"
#include "libpq/libpq-fs.h"

static Oid
createOid(PGconn *conn, int i)
	Oid			lobjId;
	int			lobj_fd;

	 * create a large object
	lobjId = lo_creat(conn, INV_READ | INV_WRITE);
	if (lobjId == 0)
		fprintf(stderr, "can't create large object\n");

	lobj_fd = lo_open(conn, lobjId, INV_WRITE);

	printf("oid [%d]  %d\n", lobjId, i);
/*	printf("\tfd [%d]", lobj_fd); */

	lo_close(conn, lobj_fd);

	return lobjId;

static void
exit_nicely(PGconn *conn)

main(int argc, char **argv)
	char	   *database;
	Oid			lobjOid;
	PGconn	   *conn;
	PGresult   *res;
	int			i;

	database = argv[1];

	 * set up the connection
	conn = PQsetdb(NULL, NULL, NULL, NULL, database);

	/* check to see that the backend connection was successfully made */
	if (PQstatus(conn) == CONNECTION_BAD)
		fprintf(stderr, "Connection to database '%s' failed.\n", database);
		fprintf(stderr, "%s", PQerrorMessage(conn));

	res = PQexec(conn, "begin");
		for (i=0; i<100; i++)
	    	lobjOid = createOid(conn, i); 
	res = PQexec(conn, "end");
	return 0;
