If I understand what you're saying, I can't reproduce the problem.
With a "tmp.sql" containing:
create table nameo (nameo text);
insert into nameo (nameo) VALUES ('bingo'), ('bonzo'), ('bang');
select * from nameo;
I see this behavior:
psql --file tmp.sql
INSERT 0 3
I'm on ununtu jaunty, using bash and PostgreSQL 8.3.7.

Myself, I wouldn't try to put together a db-backed app without
a glue language (e.g. perl).
