I wrote an extension and marked one of the tables it creates as a config
table using pg_extension_config_dump(). This caused the data to be dumped
and restored correctly, but the sequence attached to the PK column was not
correctly set to its old value.

In searching for a solution I found an old message where Tom suggested
marking the sequence as a config table in the same way. This seems to work
OK when I use pg_dump, but for some reason, pg_dumpall generates the
following error:

pg_dump: SQL command failed
pg_dump: Error message from server: ERROR:  cannot copy from sequence
pg_dump: The command was: COPY auditlog.sq_pk_audit_data_type  TO stdout;
pg_dumpall: pg_dump failed on database "ises", exiting

Why does it work with pg_dump but not pg_dumpall?
