I found an easy solution for my problem: Libpq provides information if
the timestamps are double values or integer values.

When passing the parameter "integer_datetimes" to the function "PQparameterStatus"
"on" or "off" is returned.

I adapted my conversion routine to handle both integer and double
timestamps. Everything works fine now.
