In fact only a directory was created, right?

Yes and no. The statement itself is correct. However, the usage is not. I
take it you are executing the statement inside a transaction but do not
issue a commit afterwards. Thus pg_database is not updated at all.
Please try calling EXEC SQL COMMIT; after the CREATE DATABASE call. This
should work. At least it does for me.
Or call ecpg with parameter '-t' to switch off autotransaction mode. With
'-t' the CREATE DATABASE statement becomes a transaction for itself and thus
is committed once it returns.
Hope this helps.
