ERROR: DeleteTypeTuple: column of type tablename exists in relation #

I'm having a problem with a table that accidently had a column added
whose type is the same as the table. This is seriously creating a
problem as I cannot delete the table and I really don't have the
ability to destroy the database (with all the other tables) just to
get rid of this. Does anyone know of a way to get the database to
allow a drop of a table that has this sort of situation.

Here's a sample of what I get...

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

db=# \d tablename
Table "tablename"
Column | Type | Modifiers
id | integer | not null default
name | text |
x | tablename |

db=# drop table tablename;
