The $dbh->quote() method for DBD::Pg lacks the ability to quote bytea types. There is actually a TODO note in the code about adding support for quoting Pg specific types. Presumabliy the difficulties we are having with this would be solved by that, once it has been implemented. In the meantime, I believe it's just a matter of getting the right escapes happen so that the procedure is inserting values that we can later get via a select and using bind_param() with the PG_BYTEA type.
