I've looked at the mylog outputs from pgODBC in this case and they seem to 
show the driver (at some point) returns the correct values.  How these are 
then translated and shown in MS Access is beyond me.  I'll keep 
investigating though.

[investigated some more]I just tried pgODBC 7.03.0208 and I get the correct 
result.  Seems it's another bug that's been introduced after this time. 
I'll look to see which version is the earliest to cause this problem.
