Well, the way to debug this sort of thing is to look at the error code
number.  In psql you do it like this:

regression=# \set VERBOSITY verbose
regression=# select '2008-05-06 00:00:95'::timestamptz;
ERROR:  22008: date/time field value out of range: "2008-05-06 00:00:95"
LOCATION:  DateTimeParseError, datetime.c:3112

and then a search in the appendix for 22008 finds

	22008	DATETIME FIELD OVERFLOW
