        Shift JIS (Winindows-932)
        Big5 (Windows-950)
        GBK (Windows-936)
        UHC (Windows-949)
        windows-1250
        PG_GB18030

 are client encodings only. You can't  create DB in these encodings. I'm
 not sure if this behaviour is described in PostgreSQL's docs.

 For details see include/mb/pg_wchar.h

 That's right, it's  feature. I agree that it's a little  funny that you
 can't use native windows encoding in the native windows PostgreSQL port
 :-)
