Bug reference:      3236
Logged by:          Christian Gonzalez

PostgreSQL version: 8.2.1
Operating system:   Red Hat 4.1.1-30
Description:        Partitioning has problem with timestamp and timestamptz
data type
Details: 

When you use timestamp and timestamptz data type for partitioning
implementation, your postgresql partitioning  implementation doesen't work
fine when you make a SELECT using this columns type.

Using Example in PostgreSQL Partitioning page
http://www.postgresql.org/docs/8.2/interactive/ddl-partitioning.html

    city_id         int not null,

    unitsales       int
);

We have similar results for timestamptz data type

Why dosen't work?
