Hmm...you are trying to reference a COLUMN and not a TABLE for your 
In your note you mentioned "a table named "CST00SRF" " - is that really a 
column?  Is the error report actually correct and you are getting confused 
by putting a table name in place of where a colum name should be?

Otherwise, can you reload your PostGIS data?  With ogr2ogr there is a 
creation option "-lco LAUNDER=YES" that will clean up you object names.
