Subject: [BUGS] BUG #3429: table named MULTIPOLYGON

The following bug has been logged online:

Bug reference:      3429
Logged by:          James White
Email address:      jbw20032(at)earthlink(dot)net
PostgreSQL version: 8.2.3
Operating system:   debian etch amd64
Description:        table named MULTIPOLYGON

I accidentally created a table name multipolygon with the typo:

ogr2ogr  -f "PostgreSQL" -nln sw_watersheds -nln MULTIPOLYGON 
PG:dbname=swgap USGSwatersheds.shp

Using the \dt command I get a line

 public | MULTIPOLYGON     | table | postgres

However with this command 

swgap=# \d multipolygon
Did not find any relation named "multipolygon".
swgap=# \dt multipolygon
No matching relations found.

I cannot drop this table
