Description:
In previous versions of the postgresql package, authenticated
users of a postgresql database could cause the postgresql server
to crash by triggering a failure in converting an error message to
an encoding selected by the user, by making mismatched encoding
conversion requests. In addition, a GiST index corruption bug
is also addressed by this update; users of GiST indices should
regenerate GiST indices after updating.
