Oh, thanks. Now it works as it should. Yeah, I thought that the
solution isn't probably very hard, but when you don't get it, you just
don't get it. :) When doing this transfer (MySQL->PostgreSQL) in my
code, I invent some ways to reduce the number of code lines and was
able to cut the size of my sql-module about 40-50%. So, some thing
lead to another, and so on. There is stille quite much cleaning and
refactoring to do, but luckily it just is for my own (and my wife's
too) personal use, so... ;))

Maybe some day I know enough to make good code. These days I know
enough to be dangerous. ;)

Thanks guys!
