Bug reference:      16300
Logged by:          Hans Buschmann
Email address:      (redacted)
PostgreSQL version: 12.2
Operating system:   Windows Server 2019 64bit
Description:        

A reproducable line order corruption occurs when copying a quite large test
file into Postgres.

I was trying to import and parse a big .xml file (about 41 MB, 643407 lines)
into a simple import table using the following sequence:


create database x86db template=template0 encoding 'UTF8' lc_collate='C';

\c x86db

create table uops_imp2 (
cline varchar
)
;

copy uops_imp2 from 'N:/downloads/uops_info_instructions_200226.xml';
or
copy uops_imp2 from '/usr/local/hb/uops_info_instructions_200226.xml';

This was tested on different machines under Windows Server 2019 64bit and
Fedora 31 x86-64 under Postgres 12.2 respective 12.1:

x86db=# select version ();
                          version
------------------------------------------------------------
 PostgreSQL 12.2, compiled by Visual C++ build 1914, 64-bit
(1 row)

x86db=# select version ();
                                                version
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 PostgreSQL 12.1 on x86_64-pc-linux-gnu, compiled by gcc (GCC) 9.2.1
20190827 (Red Hat 9.2.1-1), 64-bit
(1 row)

The original order of the input lines from the original file was verified
under 2 different editors under Windows:

notepad++ 7.8.5 x64
notepad (as build in), with status line turned on to show line numbers

Here are shown the line 627365 til 627392: (the correct original)

when querying the table by

select * from uops_imp2 offset 627365 limit 27;

I get a different part from the original lines with another line mangled in
between (see ###)
x86db=#
x86db=# select * from uops_imp2 offset 627365 limit 27;

(27 rows)


In all cases i tried the original order of the lines was not preserved and
the disorder was the same.

The count of all lines seems correct:

x86db=# select count(*) from uops_imp2;
 count
--------
 643407
(1 row)

The same error occurred when using \copy on the psql client side.

To reproduce, the XML-file is directly downloadable under the following
address:

https://uops.info/xml.html

and choosing the file instructions.xml

I have not further analyzed other regions of line order corruption because
it is very difficult when you cant rely on postgres COPY.

I fear similar problems could occur when restoring a pg_dump file, which
also relies on copy commands.

Thanks in advance
