What is the exact information you want me to give ?
Everything I checked came from my analysis of psqlODBC's log.

I saw that in the first case (before the restore) a schema-qualified 
nextval() was issued, and after the restore it was not schema qualified 

I looked further up in the log to see where the sequence name came from, 
and it seemed that it came from pg_attrdef.adsrc.
I checked the value of this field in both databases, and it was different.

Maybe psqlODBC does the wrong thing when taking the sequence name from 
this field, but my guess was that the problem came from here.

Displayed in pg_attrdef.adsrc ? It is not in the search_path, and it is 
schema qualified before the dump/restore and not after.

As you have understood, I am not very savvy about postgresql's 
internals, but from what you say my guess is that the problem is int the 
psqlODBC is getting the default value of the sequence ?
