Well that's definitely true. The case in hand was a PHP where the PHP driver
doesn't seem to automatically use binary mode and doesn't provide any way for
the application to select it either. 

It expects the user code to handle the escaping for all parameters using
PQEscape* functions. But there is no candidate function to handle bytea ascii
parameters. I'm sure it can be done in PHP directly though.

Incidentally it seems even using PQEscapeBytea with standard conforming
strings set is still corrupting the byteas so there may be an actual bug
somewhere. Haven't had a chance to look into it yet though.
