I think I found the problem...

in orm/columns.py at line 547:

# float point quantities
float, floatColumn = _float, _floatColumn

The "float" above must be a Python reserved word, which is resulting in 
the orm.column._float instance being committed to the database.

If I modify orm/columns.py like this:
# float point quantities
orm_float, floatColumn = _float, _floatColumn

And then I change my dbclass table definition from
"bid_price : float()"
"bid_price : orm_float()"

It works like a charm  :)

Thanks to the python syntax highlighting of the Kate editor for flagging 
"float" for me.
