it's the 8.3.1 win32 binary coming from postgresql.org i'm using.

i was digging in the mailing list archives for some answers and found 
the conversation about the patch which i believed to be included in 
8.3.1. sorry for the mess :|

nevertheless the problem/bug exists: changing LC_MESSAGES has no effect 
on the windows boxes, while it works on the non-win32 systems. all i 
really would like is to get english system messages back on our 
non-english win32 servers - like they were pre 8.3.1.

the main reason for this being: the german error messages have non-ascii 
special characters in the error text ('»' and '«') which mess with some 
of our applications (whereas english messages use '"').


regards,
thomas
