Which PostGIS / PostgreSQL version are you using? I cannot reproduce it

navteq=# select 'BOX3D(90900 190900, 100100 200100)'::box3d;
 BOX3D(90900 190900 0,100100 200100 0)
(1 row)

And grepping throug the current source, I cannot find the String "BOX3d"
but I can see

./lwgeom/lwgeom_box3d.c: elog(ERROR,"BOX3D parser - doesnt start with

So I assume you've got a case sensitivity problem here.

Btw, why don't you use box2d:

navteq=# select 'BOX(90900 190900, 100100 200100)'::box2d;
 BOX(90900 190900,100100 200100)
(1 row)
