Attached is a patch to the scanner and the COPY code that checks for 
invalidly encoded data that can currently leak into our system via \ 
escapes in quoted literals or text mode copy fields, as recently 
discussed. That would still leave holes via chr(), convert() and 
possibly other functions, but these two paths are the biggest holes that 
need plugging.

cheers
