I personally can't show you anything except a bug report from my user,
but I'll encourage him to post it here. He complains that libpqxx can't
read the fraction part of a floating-point number, which boils down to a
sscanf(GetValue(c,x,y), "%f", &f) always returning f as an integral
Of course it's also possible that there's a bug in his display code or
that I'm missing something very, very important. Time to add some FP
