Connected to RDS (postgres) can't run queries

I’ve connected Metabase (running locally) to my RDS (postgres) database. I can sync and I can see all my tables listed. When I try to run any query the response is always:

We couldn’t understand your question.
Your question might contain an invalid parameter or some other error.

Is there a way to view the exact query error somewhere?

If you switch to SQL mode, ( http://www.metabase.com/docs/v0.12.0/users-guide/03-asking-questions.html#asking-more-advanced-questions-in-sql ), can you do a select 1 against that DB successfully? If that works does a select count(*) from <SomeTable> for one of your tables work?

We log to the console in OS X.

SQL mode works. My tables are in a schema so I have to prepend them with schema_name, like SELECT * FROM schema_name.table_name LIMIT 100 for it to work. I’m not sure how to get the “question mode” queries to specify the schema.

opened up an issue https://github.com/metabase/metabase/issues/1306
and will try to repro locally.
