I am trying to convert several of my .shp files to the PostGIS database and
when it inserts some of the larger polygons it fails to insert the geometry
field value.
I tried it using the shp2pgsql and I tried it using my own code in C# and I
have even tried executing the SQL in the pgAdmin III Query function and all
three have the exact same results the record gets inserted but the geometry
field is null and it only happens on those records that have a lot of points
that make up the polygon, I created several test to try and determine how
many points were too much for it and I hit upon 1365 seemed to be the amount
that was too many.
Does anybody know if there is a limitation to the geometry field and if
there is how can I increase it? 

Thank You
