Many PyGreSQL users aren't aware of the fact that it's part of PostgreSQL. I
sent a message to the mailing list recommending that they report bugs w/ the
PostgreSQL bug tracker in the future, not only on the mailing list.

I personally (and many others) switched to using different PostgreSQL/Python
interface. There are three alternatives to the one include in PG. I prefer which is decidedly less buggy.

You're welcome :-)

I also think that the bug is a major one. There were at least three complaints
at the mailing list, but it seems the PyGreSQL maintainer doesn't have much
