If you want to expclicitely call BEGIN you either have to call ecpg with
option '-t' to change the default value or issue a EXEC SQL SET AUTOCOMMIT ON
in your program.

The default of ecpg is that it creates a transaction for all your action
automatically and you just issue COMMITs. After a COMMIT ecpg issues a BEGIN
all by himself. With SUTOCOMMIT set to ON ecpg uses the same logic as psql
for instance, namely that each statement is a transaction of its own unless
you issue a BEGIN.
