Upon importing a file derived from rails establishment,
psql is hitting the error of foreign key constraints:
ERROR: insert or update on table "documents" violates foreign key constraint "fk_rails_d4abdc7f58" Key (typ_document_id)=(7) is not present in table "typ_documents".
Yet, querying afterwards
SELECT * from typ_documents;
getting a result
7 | Test Internal | 2013-07-04 08:36:16.026295 | 2013-07-04 08:36:16.026295
The only assumption that I can follow is that, when the table
documents is being loaded, the order of loading is such that
typ_documents is happening after and the error is arising. Yet, this error is not occurring consistently and the data dump is in alphabetical order of table names. Thus, this is a weak assumption.
Removing the foreign key constraint from rails would overcome the problem, but that is a weak reaction.

How can this issue be debugged/overcome?
