Trying not too assume to much, have you,
turned on the ODBC logging to see the SQL traffic back and forth?
And have you turned on logging for the PostgreSQL server to the 
statement level?

The error statement must be VERY literal, some data doesn't fit into one 
or more of your int2 (2-byte), int4 (4-byte), or date/time fields. Also 
don't rule out checking the size of your Serial field.
