I haven't used Clipper in a few years, and that was a DOS-only experience,
but, as a general sense, I'd suspect that Clipper (or SQLkit_pg) is
setting you up in AutoCommit mode (or whatever their version of this
term is). That is, they'll try to wrap each command of yours in its own
Begin/Commit command.

(With Perl's standard database software, DBI, it can make this assumption
as well, but you can set AutoCommit to off to handle your own

Unless you get some specific help here, you might want to pose the
question to newsgroups for your development environment about how to turn
off this feature, if this is in fact what it is.

Good luck!
