Class-DBI-AsForm-2.3 Perl v5.8.4 Linux sib 2.4.20-pre7 #1 Tue Sep 24 12:12:24 PDT 2002 i686 GNU/Linux I tracked this down because my 0 values kept disappearing from the database in a Maypole application. The stock Maypole 'edit' template calls to_field, which in turn calls _to_textfield. If the value of the item is 0, a value="0" statement does not get generated, so if you don't fill it back in again every time you edit a just disappears.
