This is really starting to confuse me.

The primary key in postgres was on a field defined as an integer.
access viewed this as a long integer. my understanding is that these both
correspond to int4, so that should be fine.
I added another column, using timestamp, to extend the primary key. This has
made no difference, although in doing so I noted that the behaviour I am
having trouble with only occurs if the new record is added using the form.
If I add a record using the datasheet view of the table, I can do what I
like with it, either in datasheet view or through a form. If however the
record is added using a form, (this is a bound form using the linked table
as its datasource), then problems arise.

Troubleshoot how Access sees your table.
In Access, choose to view the design of your table and ignore messages
about that you will not be able to change things on a linked table. Are
the fields what you think they should be numeric and character.

Does your table have a primary key? It should.
Is the postgres primary key float or int8 or serial8? That would be bad.
Access/ODBC behaves best when your fields are int (int4) or serial
(serial4).  There is some indication that adding a timestamp field with
a time of NOW() will allow Access to determine its (client) view of key
matches the Postgres servers view of the key and match records for
updating, etc. -- otherwise you tend to get non-updatable recordsets.

There is some indication that tables that HAVE record OIDs help maintain
the client-server key connection, avoiding the "no current record

I am a littles surprised at the ability to delete. Access tends to use a
syntax of 'DELETE * FROM table' where Postgres insist on 'DELETE FROM
table' with no *. I have to use pass-throughs to delete records.

I not sure any of this will help but I figure it is worth a shot.
