Don't see anything that special before the backend crashes. Seems to
crash on the very first insert that is done after settign datestyle to

Don't worry, it's not an ECPG problem. The regression test just had a
bad way to check for errors. I might have to check all tests again,
because they were doen to check the stuff in ecpg and might not take a
backend crash into regard at all. 

Simple problem this time was that the test only printed out errors and
not stopped.

Fixed in HEAD.
