Thanks for your reply, Des; unfortunately, your suggestion had no affect.  I 
realize this is technically a PostgreSQL issue, but rationalized my request 
help here because (1) this is the PHP-DB list and PHP is used with MySQL and 
PostgreSQL more than any other databases, and (2) I assumed that since PHP5 and 
PostgreSQL 8.0 have been released, there are many developers who have had to 
deal with this or a similar problem.

Try -format .. and output it as ASCII ... I _seem_ to recall having a 
similar issue a month or so ago .. this is really a PostgreSQL issue,
