Possible. I would turn on statement logging on the server and make sure
the query is the way you wrote it in the app. The driver might be doing
something like pulling all the data and attempting a client side filter.
Otherwise you may be looking at a casting problem of some sort.
To turn on logging, set statement log to 'all' in your postgresql.conf
file. You may need to start the server manually so you can determine
where the log goes (logging to terminal is often the easiest to work
If you are writing Delphi applications, you really should check out
Zeos. It utilizes native drivers to connect to the database...it's
really, really fast and supports all the Delphi controls (and free!).
