[postgis-users] shp2pgsql bug?

I am trying to load a shapefile into postgis using shp2pgsql tool:

shp2pgsql myfile roads sdb > roads.sql

The roads.sql was generated but when I try to run

psql -d sdb -f roads.sql I got the following error:

ERROR:  Bad int8 external representation "".

Anybody knows what's wrong?

The roads.sql looks like:

create table roads (gid int4 , TLID int8, FNODE int4, TNODE int4, LENGTH 
float8, FEDIRP varchar, FENAME varchar, FETYPE varchar, FEDIRS varchar, CFCC 
varchar, FRADDL int8, TOADDL int8, FRADDR int8, TOADDR int8, ZIPL varchar, 
ZIPR varchar, CENSUS1 varchar, CENSUS2 varchar, CFCC1 varchar, CFCC2 
varchar, SOURCE varchar);
select AddGeometryColumn('sdb','roads','the_geom','-1','MULTILINESTRING',2);
insert into roads 
((-121.271077 37.168284 ,-121.268691 37.169473 ,-121.268443 37.169496))',-1) 

It fails at the first insert.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.
