PostgreSQL version: 7.4

Operating system:   Linux Mandrake 10.0

Description:        wrong date->number of week conversion


  I encountered following problem - executing command:
select to_char(to_date('2003-12-29','YYYY-MM-DD'),'YYYY-IW-DD')
I receive

Frankly speaking I don`t know the adequate calendar ISO norm  in detail, but 
the last days of year shouldn`t be counted as F_I_R_S_T week of that year. I 
expected PostgreSQL rather to return 2003-53-29. 

Some extra details about my OS:

uname -a
Linux computer 2.6.3-4mdk #1 Tue Mar 2 07:26:13 CET 2004 i586 unknown 
unknown GNU/Linux 

SELECT version()
PostgreSQL 7.4 on i686-pc-linux-gnu, compiled by GCC gcc (GCC) 3.2.2 
20030222 (Red Hat Linux 3.2.2-5
