Yep, those are symptoms of this problem.

While the dates barnyard is inserting may be zero's, ACID could 
represent them differently (eg 00:00 as 12:00, etc), depending on how 
it's been written.

Anyway, i have not tested PostgreSQL, nor examined it's schema, so i 
couldn't say wether PostgreSQL would make a difference.

However, with Barnyard 0.1.0 and MySQL 3/4, the patch wuurked for me! :)

Cool. Would be good to get feedback.
