This earlier thread may be of interest:

It deals with limitations of pgadmin and postgis.

If the geometries really are null, are you also able to try loading the
data with ogr2ogr to see if you get the same result?   Are you sure you
don't have any invalid geometries?  I don't know how FME handles these.

vim is a good example of an IDE done properly.  emacs is an example of
an IDE done poorly.  Anything that involves little pictures is a
mis-umderstanding of what an IDE should be.
