Hi there,
Many thanks, and congratulations to your work thus far.  I use pgAdmin-III
pretty much on a daily basis, and it's done a great job of putting a nice
face on postgresql.  I would probably not choose to use postgresql if it
weren't for there being a decent gui with which to interact through.
As you may have guessed however, I've recently become aware of a problem.
I'm using pgAdmin-III 1.2.2 on Windows XP, and pasting a large-ish amount of
text from the copy/paste buffer into a 'text' column, and find that the text
is truncated at around 33K in size.
The text I'm wanting to paste is around 100K in size.
4 things I have noticed:
a) if you go to the end of the column, and try adding text, it won't let me.
b) if I go to the beginning of the column, and add text, it will let me.
c) having done b) quite a few times (making text of around 1MB in size) and
then moving from one row to another, the CPU utilization jumped up to around
90% and the app never came back.  I'm not sure whether it sent anything to
the db or not.
d) even after having gotten the larger amount of text (say 100K) into the
buffer a piece at a time by pasting some dummy text repeatedly, if I then
add / replace this with the text I really want in there, it still gets
truncated at the 33K mark.
Would someone with their finger on the pulse of pgAdmin-III code be able to
fix this please?
