Hi Martin,

To be honest: That doesn't seem to be a reasonable setting of test
server/production server to me. The combination of numerous
versions/platforms raises the chances to run into problems such as you

This seems to be the problem: A comma is missing. While the PostGIS 0.8
on your test system by some means ignores this error the version 1.0 on
your production server is more strict about this.
