Hi everyone:

I am using Postgresql 7.3.4 and found a problem inserting "Timestamp" objects through
JDBC Prepared Statements when the time zone is set to Canada/Newfoundland (3 hours and
30 minutes from MGT). I am trying to insert "new Timestamp(0L)" into one of the fields.
The database replies with an error message:

Bad timestamp external representation '1969-12-31 20:30:00.000000-030-30'

Most likely, the database doesn't understand the last part of the timestamp, which is
'-30' (30 minutes). It works properly only with time zones that don't have that additional
half hour difference.

Does anyone know how to solve this problem?
