I assume this is a PgAdmin III bug, but I could be wrong.
I'm using PgAdmin 1.10.1 on Windows, but seems to be an issue with even 1.8 since I tried on that too.

The upcoming PostGIS 1.5 has a new type called geography that uses the Typmod functionality introduced in 8.3.

I'm guessing this is a display bug in how PgAdmin is displaying typmod types.

Details here

What is interesting is if I do a select of the table in question, the geography header shows correctly as

geography(Point,4326) or geography(Linestring,4326)

so it seems its just in the 

CREATE TABLE ... that displays on the side panel of PgAdmin or when you select generate create script.

I could of sworn I saw it right at some point before (but installing a previous experimental build of PostGIS behaved the same). Perhaps I was always focusing on the display of the SELECT... of its display in phppgadmin which correctly displays the type.

In case you need to test, have windows experimental builds here
