plpgsql FOUND Variable

Hi,
when I run a SELECT INTO and the result is 0 or zero row, then I still
get a positive result if
using IF FOUND THEN....

Is there a problem or do we need to use ROW_COUNT instead ?

I recall Neil Conway fixed some problems with FOUND a version or two
back. If you are not on 7.3.*, update. If you are, let's see the
details.
