There were a lot of messages that I received with this problem.
A lot of people have PostgreSQL 6.3.2 distribution working fine with
PgAccess 0.90 or prior, and when they upgrade to 0.93, it won't work.
They have the right libpq+libpgtcl couple for their postgres, but
libpgtcl prior to 6.4 does not have the -error option in pg_result.

That's true.
I'm truly excited about 6.4.x and so on.
It gives me confidence and courage to work on big projects with it.
