There's an issue that JDBC doesn't cope very well with 'Infinity'
values, which is more or less the opposite of what's reported here.  I
have been tending to put "don't allow +/-Infinity" constraints onto
timestamps to avoid that particular impedance mismatch.

Just ran a little test of this with...

PostgreSQL 8.3.3, last year's JDBC, and had no difficulties pushing in
the date "2100-01-01 00:00:00".

That suggests the problem to be elsewhere.  (As, I expect, you would
expect!)
