  Short Description: problems with renaming a column of type serial
                     and GRANT/REVOKE instructions in pg_dump

Hi guys,

I have been working on a database for a while and just today tried to 
restore a dump of it. (I have an automatic dump created every night for 
safe keeping).

This is when I noticed a problem with several columns of type serial which 
I had renamed. The sequence functioning worked fine, but the sequence 
references in the GRANT/REVOKE commands weren't renamed.

According to the release notes of version 8.1.0, Tom has fixed it, however 
he mentions problems with DEFAULT values and not GRANT/REVOKE. So I'm 
still posting this bug in case the fix was not enough for the entire 
functionality of a database.

Please, see the attached .sql file which includes instructions on how
to run it
