Bug reference:      6066
Logged by:          Christoph Berg
Email address:      cb(at)df7cb(dot)de
PostgreSQL version: 9.1, 9.0, 8.4
Operating system:   any
Description:        Bad string in German translation causes segfault
(user-triggerable)
Details: 

In German locale, the follow statement causes vsnprintf() to segfault when
printing the hint:

SELECT TO_DATE('30.12.2011', 'YYYYMMDD') AS datum;

Fix tested for 8.4:
