After I sent it and reread my mail, I realized that my fix
wouldn't be enough because of the above: ECPG uses sprintf()
for float and double, and just like in the backend, a common
code to send "NaN" and +/- "Infinity" to the server is needed.
New patch is attached.

Bible has answers for everything. Proof:
"But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more
than these cometh of evil." (Matthew 5:37) - basics of digital technology.
"May your kingdom come" - superficial description of plate tectonics
