PgAdmin is not the right tool to check if you have spatial data in
your table, as it fails at representing long lines.
You should make an sql query to check the data validity, type or
nullity, something like:
select distinct geometrytype(the_geom) from onb;

Or you can use a visual tool to display your table (mapserver, uDig,
Jump, ... plethora of choice)
