ZPsycopgDA getcursor() returns uninitialized connections if called from a separate thread

Reported by Daniele Varrazzo | April 2nd, 2013 @ 12:15 AM

Manually creating a thread and calling getcursor() from there returns a cursor on a connection that didn't receive the 'init' procedure (isolation level, encoding, typecasters).

Reported by zagy in https://github.com/psycopg/psycopg2/pull/2

For the moment the bug won't be fixed, at least not in the invasive way proposed above. An easy workaround is to explicitly call getconn().cursor() instead of getcursor().

If you are affected by this bug please add a comment, thank you.
