OK Tom I'll try to sound more concerned next time :))

I'm using the rte->ref Attr structure to carry internal info on table
names and column names. What I should be able to do is decouple the
internal ref structure from the table name/column list specified by a
user, so the "query recreation" code can ignore the internal structure
and just use the original list from the user.

Should be able to go into v7.0 with no problem (other than initdb, but
it *is* a beta!!).

Naw, the above should be easier all around.
