Short Description
plpgsql, date data type and time change

Long Description
This weekend (october 28th, 2001), we went back to standard time.  

When I call my function named 'amende' (the code is below), with dates before and after october 28th (ex: amende('2001-10-27','2001-10-28'), I get the following message:

ERROR: Memory exhausted in AllocSetAlloc(84)

But if I call amende('2001-07-01','2001-07-02') or amende('2001-07-01','2005-12-31'), no problem.

The problem seems to be in the WHILE loop, but I can't figure what's wrong.

This function is used to calculate the fine owed between two dates in a school library system.

Table joursSemFermes lists closed day of week, and yable joursermes lists dates when the library is closed. We don't charge a fine when the library is closed.
Table parametres has only one record. This record holds system wide settings, like fine rate, max number of books a student can have,...

Thank you.

Sample Code
CREATE FUNCTION "amende" (date,date) RETURNS real AS 'DECLARE
   dateRetour alias for $1;
   dateRemise alias for $2;
   dateJour date;
   jourSem int2;

   nbJours int4;
   nb_semaine int4;
   nb_joursRestants int2;
   nb_joursFermes int4;
   buffer text;
   taux float4;
   IF dateRetour < current_date THEN
   -- Trouver le taux d''amende
   select tauxamende INTO taux from parametres;
   --Si le taux d''amende est null, on dclanche une erreur
      RAISE EXCEPTION ''Un taux d''''amende doit tre spcifi dans la table PARAMETRES'';
   END IF;
   --Charger la date du jour dans dateRemise
   IF dateRemise = ''2000-01-01 BC''::date THEN
      SELECT date(now()) into dateRemise;
   END IF;

   --Trouver le nombre de semaine entre dateRetour et dateRemise
   select int4div(dateRemise - dateRetour,7), int4mod(dateRemise - dateRetour,7) INTO nb_semaine,nb_joursRestants;
   nbJours:= (nb_semaine * 7) + nb_joursRestants;

   --Dterminer le nombre de jours ferms
   --Jours de la semaine ferms
   SELECT count(dow)*7 INTO nb_joursFermes FROM joursSemFermes;
   --Dates fermes
   SELECT count(ferme) INTO nb_joursFermes from joursfermes WHERE ferme BETWEEN dateRetour and dateRemise;

   --Vrifier les jours restants
   dateJour:=dateRemise - nb_joursRestants +1;
   WHILE (dateJour <= dateRemise) LOOP
      SELECT date_part(''dow'',dateJour) into jourSem;
      SELECT ''texte''::text INTO buffer
      WHERE jourSem IN (select dow from joursSemFermes);
      END IF;
      --Incrmenter la date de 1 jour
      select date(dateJour + ''1 day''::interval) into dateJour;
   RETURN round(nbJours::float4 * taux,2)::float4;
       RETURN 0::float4;
   END IF;
' LANGUAGE 'plpgsql';
