Fixed too.

Yea, I thought the contents of the ftoptions field was compatible with
the CREATE FOREIGN TABLE syntax, but it appears it isn't. So I had to
implement a parse function which was quite difficult (hence the comments
in the function).

Seems to be fixed.

Under foreign servers.

Still need to works on this.

Thanks for this complete bug report.
