The code you posted has several syntax errors so it can't be what
you're running.  When posting examples, please show exactly what
you're doing so people don't have to guess at what corrections to
make.

In any case, others have reported trouble handling bytea with ECPG;
see the list archives for previous discussion.  I see a lot of calls
to strlen() in the ECPG source code, so it might not be designed
to handle binary data.  You might need to fetch the data in non-binary
mode and use PQunescapeBytea() to convert the escape sequences to
binary.
