Hm, but PQescapeByteaConn() shouldn't produce a literal that the server
later rejects, no matter what standard_conforming_strings is set to.
It looks like PQescapeByteaConn() does the right thing here, though -
it doesn't escape the backslash in it's result when dealing with 9.1,
presumably because that server has wstandard_conforming_strings set to on.
But why then is the server rejecting the result?
The only way I can see that make that happend would be to prefix the
string returned by PQescapeByteaConn() with 'E'.
@OP: Could you post the code fragment that causes the error?
