	Everyone,

	Just ran across an odd situation.
	I have defined a field:

  amount       | money                    | not null default ''

	Works fine until the dollar amounts get
	very large  -  into the tens of millions.
	At that point, the actual amount stored
	becomes very unpredictable.

	I just saved a record via a simple
	front end App.  I entered 56,000,000
	When I retrieved the record i got:
		$13,050,327.04  !!

	Any thoughts ?

		ENVIRONMENT:
			Linux 2.4.20-20.7smp
			psql (PostgreSQL) 7.2.3

		Thank you,
		Terry
