Try unjarring the driver, and then jarring it back up again (making sure all the directories are correct) but WITHOUT compression.
$ jar -xvf postgresql.jar
$ jar -cv0f postgresql.jar org
The first command should unpack and unj(t)ar the jar file into an org directory with sub-directories. The second command packs them all up again with no compression.
This has caused me problems in the past, although I have not gone into it in any depth, so I haven't identified the exact cause, or even exactly when it happens.
Let me know...
