#659 closed defect (fixed)

shp2pgsql crashing when trying to load into geography order sensitive

Reported by: robe Owned by: pramsey
Priority: medium Milestone: PostGIS 2.0.0
Component: postgis Version: master
Keywords: Cc:


I have this statement

shp2pgsql -G -g geog data/roadtrl020.shp ch01.roads_geog > roads_geog.sql

works fine with the PostGIS 1.5 shp2pgsql but crashes with my current build of PostGIS 2.0 shp2pgsql loader. Loading without the -G switch works fine too in both and shp2pgsql-gui also works fine in both.

Actually loading like this also works:

shp2pgsql -g geog -G data/roadtrl020.shp ch01.roads_geog > roads_geog.sql

So it seems to be sensitive to the order of the arguments My build is (running on windows 7)

Fixed in trunk revision 6922. The -G was attempting to set a default column name and accidentally freeing the old column name when it shouldn't.

Was this ever an issue with 1.5 shp2pgsql? People seem to be complaining about it on our book forum.
