I didn't look closely at the rest of the code, but if the trigger
is fired on INSERT then you should pass oldtuple; newtuple will be
NULL, causing SPI_modifytuple() to fail with SPI_ERROR_ARGUMENT.
Here's an extract from "Writing Trigger Functions in C" in the
"Triggers" chapter of the documentation:
A pointer to the row for which the trigger was fired. This is
the row being inserted, updated, or deleted. If this trigger was
fired for an INSERT or DELETE then this is what you should return
from the function if you don't want to replace the row with a
different one (in the case of INSERT) or skip the operation.
A pointer to the new version of the row, if the trigger was fired
for an UPDATE, and NULL if it is for an INSERT or a DELETE. This
is what you have to return from the function if the event is an
UPDATE and you don't want to replace this row by a different one
or skip the operation.
