Connection factories override cursor_factories

Reported by Corry Haines | March 26th, 2012 @ 04:14 AM

The cursor subclasses appear to have been coded to override the cursor_factory kwarg that can be passed to them.

If this was the intended behavior, then I guess this is not a bug, but it seems to be a very odd behavior. Because of this behavior, adding a connection factory to an existing app caused most of the cursors to break when their request for specific cursors was ignored.

So, I have patched the subclasses to allow the cursor_factory kwarg to override the connection_factory. It allows connection factories to be dropped into place without stomping all over existing code.

I have uploaded the patch to my github clone of psycopg: https://github.com/tabletcorry/psycopg2/commit/eb46f4f80794e37a16e0...
