Right.

BTW the original bug report sounds interesting to me. The conversion
between UTF-8 and ISO 8859-1 is handled by a program logic, not by
conversion tables. So if german umlauts are converted fine, there's no
reason the conversion for german sharp s does not work.

Marcus,

Can you give me the exact error message from PostgreSQL when the
conversio failed?
