Thanks for doing that.

Please note that Postgres support in 2.0.0b1 is very buggy and barely  
working. I made a few tweaks since then, so if you have the time, try  
a nightly tarball (or wait for b2).

Works for me (now - I think this was one of the post-b1 fixes that I  
had to make).

You may want to enable root debugging (in siteconfig.php). It'll not  
only print the error message directly in the browser window, but also  
displays a call stack so that you can see where the call is coming  
from (an error in pgsql.class.php isn't all that helpful - the faulty  
SQL was usually created elsewhere).

See above. Please note that I'm testing locally with Postgres 9.1, so  
it'll be interesting to see if there are other problems with 8.1.

bye, Dirk
