ECPGtrans() ignores the statement because of this check:

   * if we are not in autocommit mode, already have committed the
   * transaction and get another commit, just ignore it
  if (!con->committed || con->autocommit)
          if ((res = PQexec(con->connection, transaction)) == NULL)
                  ECPGraise(lineno, ECPG_TRANS, 
                  return FALSE;

If no statements have been executed in this transaction then committed
is true, so ECPGtrans() ignores the current statement.  It looks
like the code should make an extra consideration for SAVEPOINT in
case it's the first statement.

I'm also wondering if the check for a NULL return value from PQexec()
is sufficient.  Shouldn't it also check for a non-NULL result that's
anything other than PGRES_COMMAND_OK?
