Oh, duh, I should have thought harder. Yeah, in 8.2 you will get the
internal 1-byte-char datatype, not bpchar which is what spi_prepare
will interpret this as meaning in 8.3 and beyond.
I'd suggest using "bpchar", or maybe better "varchar" (do you actually
want fixed-width char type??) for the time being.
