[choroba]: if you turn off autocommit and run a prepared statement which fails, the transaction is automatically rolled back, at least in DBD::Pg
[erix]: at least, I'll know where to find the documentation :P
[choroba]: but if there's no prepared statement, there's no rollback
[choroba]: the rollback happens when deallocating the prepared statement in error state.
[choroba]: is this something that Pg enforces, or just a consequence of the Perl implementation?
[choroba]: also, does it make any sense? We run different statements generated from input structures, sometimes prepared statements are involved, sometimes not. We want the behaviour to be consistent.
