+Summary: Null values in Postgres DB don't evaluate to null
+Description of Problem:
+A null value in a PostgreSQL record doesn't evaluate to null, though this
+does work on Windows.  I'm not sure if it's a Mono or a Npgsql bug.
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. Create a record in a PostgreSQL table that has a null value.
+2. Query and get an IDataRecord.
+3. Do "if (record["null_val_fld"] != null)" <- this returns true.
+Actual Results:
+Value != null
+Expected Results:
+Value == null
+How often does this happen? 
+Additional Information:
+This works as expected on Windows.
