Hi Folks,

I installed postgresql8.0b1 a fews days back.
I am listing the issues which i came across
these many be already known issues or may not
be bugs.

1. Automatic convertion to NTFS.

Many NT based windows installation may not
have formatted the drive with NTFS , i think
the installer may assist or at leaset suggest
that converting from fat --> ntfs is a snap.

2. Randomly generated password is too long.

the password for the postgres account contained
non ascii characters in my case and was at least
20-30 chars.

3. History works but not Tab Expansion .
The SQL commands are not expanded on pressing tabs.

4. \s does not work although \? lists it.

psql issue.

5. After something is mistyped and the prompt changes
from "=#" to "-#" pressing ^C quits the psql whereas
in unix/linux ^C brings back to "=#" state where the
person can retype the command.

6. history was not saved .

7. Bundled PgAdminIII still shows documentation of 7.4
