"revdberr, " as the returned value on *successful* postgres operations

Are you adding the ; at the end of your sql strings?  I'm pretty sure rev
appends its own ; so the result would be an extra one. Which might make
postgres a) do whatever you told it to, then b) return a confused error due
to the second ;

Try it without adding the ;
