Attached patch restores compatibility of PostgreSQL-SDBC with
PostgreSQL server version 8.4. LibO 3.5.0 accidentally works only with
9.0 and later. (9.0 came after 8.4, there is no 8.5.)

Basically, it replaces "try to be extra-smart and look directly into
the PostgreSQL internals" by "get information from the view PostgreSQL
provides for this purpose". Because this view is buggy, it still goes
look directly in the PostgreSQL internals to work around that bug
(which has been fixed in their development branch, PostgreSQL 9.2),
but not in a way that breaks compatibility with PostgreSQL 8.4.

Please apply to libreoffice-3-5.
