That's odd then.  What if you use the same DDL as myself:

CREATE TABLE entries
(
  id serial NOT NULL,
  username text,
  firstname text,
  lastname text,
  signedup timestamp without time zone
)
WITH (
  OIDS=FALSE
);
ALTER TABLE entries OWNER TO postgres;

CREATE TABLE texts
(
  title text NOT NULL,
  a_text text,
  CONSTRAINT pk_test_title PRIMARY KEY (title)
)
WITH (
  OIDS=FALSE
);
ALTER TABLE texts OWNER TO postgres;

CREATE OR REPLACE RULE insert_test AS
    ON INSERT TO entries
   WHERE new.id = 1 DO INSTEAD  INSERT INTO texts (title, a_text)
  VALUES ('moo'::text, 'bark'::text);

And this is on Windows XP SP3.
