I wish that were the case.
I am running 8.3.7 built from the FreeBSD ports.
All insertions and updates to that table (or any others) are done
exclusively through that (or other) stored procedures.
We only use ad-hoc queries for selecting data for presentation purposes.
Our code does not cast any column to its type.
Just to make sure that this was indeed the source, we went ahead and
typecast one of the assigned values, and the generated code had a
"double cast", such as 

Column = 'value'::VARCHAR::varchar

So the plpgsql stored procedure is definitely the source.
We have worked around this by setting the variable to a blank string if
the value passed to the stored procedure is a null value, but there
definitely appears to be an issue in there.
