Hi Tom,
thanks for answering so quickly!

The error occurs for me using pg_dump and pg_restore on postgres 8.0.3 
running on RedHat ES4. But also occurs if I take the dump from the Linux 
box and run restore on a winxp box with postgres 8.0.2.

I would definetely be willing to create a self contained test case but I 
am not sure what that would be. I can create a dump file from a test 
database, but that would be after using pg_dump so you could not check 
that. Do you want me to create a database, shut it down and zip up the 
database files? Which files would those be?

Is there a way for me to find out if the dump file created with -Fc does 
contain information on the indexes?
