    I just scanned thru the documentation [] for column types.

    First, this looks like it may be affecting you.
    A column with NUMERIC affinity may contain values using all five storage classes. When text data is inserted into a NUMERIC column, an attempt is made to convert it to an integer or real number before it is stored.
    Then, a few more lines down...
    2.1 Determination Of Column Affinity
       4. Otherwise, the affinity is NUMERIC.
    So, I'm wondering if the column type is defaulting to numeric... and thus stripping the leading zero.
