I hate to reply to my own message, but I've just had an Ah-ha moment
that might be helpful.

The columns that are working seem to be the ones that I give values
when I create() the object.  If I take a perfectly good Project object
that has a valid time and do this:

  $p->started_on(DateTime->now->epoch)

it is still fine, but as soon as I do a $p->update, it's value is
inserted into the DB as a string.

Interesting?
