Please try the attached patch (generated from CVS HEAD).  

I haven't tested it, but at this late hour it sure seems like a simple
fix. If it works, I'll commit it.  

The final switch in dbsetnull() should handle NTBSTRINGBIND in some way. 
That it's missing altogether looks like an oversight.  

Thanks for the problem report.  HTH.
