Folks,

UPDATE:  Turns out the garbage characters were actually in the field names 
themselves.   Somehow a previous bad connection caused line breaks to get 
replaced with unicode garbage when I created the table.   It seems like, in 
PSQL, the use of non-ASCII characters should require quoted identifiers, but 
apparently not?
