Problem:
        Database inserts that worked previously are now failing,
        without raising exceptions!

Request:
        Help!

Production Environment: 
        zope-2.7.4, postgresql-7.4.3p2, psycopg-1.1.15, OpenBSD 3.7.
Duplicated under test environment:
        zope 2.7.4, postgresql 8.0.3, psycopg-1.1.15, OpenBSD 3.8.

Details:

When I call the Z SQL method directly, with test data, the database
insert works as expected.

When I call the same method from a python script, the database insert
fails, without raising an exception.  I can only tell the insert failed
by looking at the database and seeing that the data was not stored.

Though the insert is failing, a sequence column in the target table is
apparently being incremented by the failing insert.  (I deduce this 
from the fact that subsequent Z SQL test inserts show sequence gap
of 12 after each failed insert attempt, while no gap occurs when I
call the Z SQL method repeatedly via Zope's "test" tab.)

I will appreciate any suggestions as to how I might troubleshoot this.

Thanks!
