Wow, that is bizarre. My first thought was that you had varying numbers
of trailing blanks in the "site" values, but your second example seems
to disprove that theory.
What Postgres version are you running, and on what platform? Can you
generate a self-contained example (a script that demonstrates the error
from a standing start)? I suspect you may be hitting a platform-
specific porting problem, but it's just speculation unless we have a
self-contained test case to try on other machines.

Postgres thinks that TEMP is a keyword, so it won't take it as a table
name unless you put quotes around it. If we have doco examples that
use TEMP as a table name, they need to be changed --- do you recall
where you saw that, exactly?
