Is it ok to restart "/etc/init.d/postgresql" in postgresql package?
That will terminate all connections. Some (many?) programs (e.g.,
msyslog, which could even be running on another machine) won't
automatically re-establish the connection.
it will also cause a transaction abort, which could be undesirable.
So, I'd be wary of doing a PosgreSQL restart, just like gdm/kdm/xdm
PS: I plan to try fiddling the soname on the libnss modules; let's home
we can say "Goodbye!" to all this silly restarting business.
