Subject [jira] Created: (COUCHDB-1021) Compacting a database does not preserve the purge_seq

Compacting a database does not preserve the purge_seq

                 Key: COUCHDB-1021
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Database Core
    Affects Versions: 1.0.1
         Environment: All platforms
            Reporter: Mike Leddy
            Priority: Minor

On compacting a database the purge_seq becomes zero. As a result subsequently accessing any
view will cause the view to be rebuilt from scratch. I resolved the issue for me by patching
start_copy_compact, but this only works if you can guarantee there will be no purging done
during compaction:

+        ok = couch_file:write_header(Fd, Header=#db_header{purge_seq=PurgeSeq})
     NewDb = init_db(Name, CompactFile, Fd, Header),

 I am sure that there must be a better way of doing this.....
