Important

XA Transactions are denied if max_prepared_transactions uses the default value (0) in PostgreSQL v8.4 and v8.2.
PostgreSQL user documentation recommends you set the max_prepared_transactions value to meet or exceed the value of max_connections so every session can have a prepared transaction pending.
For more information, refer to the PostgreSQL v8.4 User Documentation, located at http://www.postgresql.org/docs/8.4/interactive/runtime-config-resource.html#GUC-MAX-PREPARED-TRANSACTIONS
