Hi !!

I was trying to get a very nice FREE graphical db tool called DbVisualizer 
(http://www.ideit.com/products/dbvis/) to work with Postgresql and I found 
out the following bug: if database has views then getTables() gets the null 
pointer exception ('order by relname' makes the listing tree in 
DbVisualizer a lot useful !!)

This patch should propably be applied to the the jdbc1's 
DatabaseMetaData.java, too.

<ql/jdbc2]$ diff -u DatabaseMetaData.java.org DatabaseMetaData.java
