Your pain is evident from the hyperbolic statement. I share your pain.

But postmaster _doesn't_ expect the files to stay _between_
invocations.... :-) But your point is understood.
What about the X sockets, then? X might stay up 10+ days. X doesn't
just put one file there, either -- there's a whole directory there in

According to what Peter said, that could be difficult.
But, let me ask this: is it a good thing for PostgreSQL clients to have
hard-coded socket locations? (Good thing or not, it exists already, and
I know it does....)
I have another question of Peter, Tom, Bruce, or anyone -- is the
hard-coded socket location in libpq? If so, wouldn't a dynamically
loaded libpq.so bring this location in for _any_ precompiled, not
statically-linked, client? Or am I missing something else?
