I suspect that de_AT on your machine implies a character set encoding
other than Unicode (likely 8859-something). So strerror() returns
a message that is in 8859-something, but the backend assumes that all
strings inside it are in Unicode, and tries to convert based on that
assumption. You need to use a locale setting that conforms to the
database encoding you've selected. It might be called de_AT.utf8
or some such.
It's a real pain in the neck that Postgres can't detect locale settings
that are incompatible with the database encoding. I don't know any
portable way to find that out, though.
