I successfully updated my database to use the validator function without 
dropping it using:

CREATE FUNCTION "plpgsql_validator" (oid) RETURNS void AS 
'$libdir/plpgsql' LANGUAGE C;
UPDATE pg_language SET lanvalidator = 'plpgsql_validator'::regproc
WHERE lanname = 'plpgsql';

The create checking is *much* better now :-)

Thanks to everyone for helping me track this down, turned out it had 
nothing to do with 8.1 but I didn't know that.
Sorry about that.
