Here´s the error:

------------------------- snip -------------------------
DBD::Pg::db table_info failed: ERROR:  Unable to identify an ordering
operator '<' for type 'unknown'
        Use an explicit ordering operator or modify the query
Can't call method "fetchrow_array" on an undefined value at line
------------------------- snap -------------------------

and this is the part of the script referred to by the error

Now, since it works with 6.4, and the developer of DBD::Pg says that
he´s tested this with 6.5, my hunch is that it has to do with some
change or other that was made in 7.1.

Has anyone tried to install or use DBI and DBD::Pg with the current
snapshot? The snapshot I used is from October 10.

I haven´t tested this with the current version, i.e. release 7, but will
probably do that if I get round to it.

Cheers Frank
