Default values fail with a postgres database #758

Hey guys,

My table looks something like this:

CREATE TABLE tablename
id uuid not null,
link_to_other_table uuid NOT NULL DEFAULT '98c11581-4505-11e2-bcfd-0800200c9a66'::uuid,
other fields....

Now that would not realy be a proper uuid but anyways. When I attempt to add a record with something like this

$model = Model::create();

I get an error telling met that Lithium attempts to insert "98c11581-4505-11e2-bcfd-0800200c9a66'::uuid" in the link_to_other_table field.
That sould either be nothing because postgres will fill the field itself with the default value or just the uuid and not the type declaration.

Thank you very much!

Yeah, looks like the Postgres adapter needs a better parser for its default values in describe().

Further testing reveals that boolean fields with a default value set to false will always default to true. Same issue.

What does the default value look like when it comes back to PHP?

Strings containing 'true' and 'false'.
