[postgis-users] Trouble with shp2pgsql-gui?

We're in the early stages of familiarising ourselves with the basic
management tools and procedures, so apologies in advance if this is well
We're running in a Debian (lenny) environment, using pgAdmin3 (1.14.0),
and have manually installed the shp2pgsql-gui (2.0).
In attempting to upload a well-formed ESRI shapefile with GCS_WGS_1984
projection, we get the following messages in the uploader gui:
Shapefile type: Polygon
PostGIS type: MULTIPOLYGON
Failed SQL begins: "SET CLIENT_ENCODING TO UTF8;
SET STANDARD_CONFORMING_STRINGS TO ON;
CREATE TABLE "public"."ro310_socio-econ" (gid serial,
Failed in pgui_exec(): could not receive data from server: The system
cannot find the path specified.
Shapefile import failed.
It looks like there is a problem with the encoding (why?) and then later
on there is a problem with the connection to the database (is that right?)
Looking for any guidance: much appreciated!
