Hi Mark and Paul,

thanks for your suggestion. Since my database was not really big by now 
I picked the easier solution to just star a new database. And now I'm 
really pleased to mention that is it working correctly!

#select postgis_full_version();
 POSTGIS="1.2.1" GEOS="3.0.0rc4-CAPI-1.3.3" PROJ="Rel. 4.5.0, 22 Oct 
(1 row)

Thanks a lot for your support
