Yeah, that's why I asked the OP for details on how to reproduce the
problem, but apparently he's not interested in investigating that
possibility ("I resent the implication in your emails that I am
some stupid user who does't [sic] know what he is doing").

It looks like CREATE TYPE AS was added in 7.3, so if your hypothesis
is correct then he'd be connecting to 7.2 or older.
