Sorry, but I haven't had the time to setup PostGIS 1.0 yet.  I would
suggest you file the bug in bugzilla.   I don't know how long it will
be till I can look into this though.

I find it funny (well perhaps that isn't exactly the right word) how 
PostGIS (from an OGR point of view) was stable for through many 
pre 1.0 revision, but then when things leaped to 1.0 release candidates
lots of backward incompatible changes were apparently made.  Of course,
some of the problems may be related to PostgreSQL 8.0.  But I feel quite
bad about not having dug into these problems.
