I'm not a Postgres expert (at all). Both Shintaro and myself seem to run the same version of Postgres. I can install rc1 just fine, he can't.

So to me this looks like a setup issue. Shintaro, can you send me your postgresql.conf file so that I can compare it with mine?

For now, I guess that once we figured out what the setting is, we'll have to document that Geeklog only works with that option being set to whatever.

The proper solution then, as mentioned in the comments in the bug, would be to use two single quotes instead of backslash + quote to escape quotes for Postgres. But that would require changing all of Geeklog to call the new DB_escapeString() function. And that's not something that can be done with a simple search&replace operation, since we're using addslashes() in, erm, creative ways in some places.

Btw, the patch doesn't help us here. In fact, it's not correct, since it would replace single quotes with an HTML ' entity - in text strings that are not HTML but plain text.

bye, Dirk
