Yes, switching to the latest JDBC4 driver did work. I had started with the driver they thought they needed, the last version of the JDBC3 driver, but that, as identified, lacks that queryTimeout functionality.

And Scott had mentioned:

I did try PT0 after you suggested it, but that still gave an error for an illegal argument. But with the Postgres driver Paul mentioned, I no longer need to worry about that setting for now.
