what I'm seeing now is much the same. FWIW, it looks like we're picking
up the cruft around 
  
  functions.c:354    paramLI->value = fcinfo->arg[paramLI->id - 1];

(both of which are type Datum)

i've been in circles trying to figure out where fcinfo->arg is filled.
can you point me toward that?

thanks for your help.
