psycopg does encode your strings to the backend encoding but this
shouldn't be a problem. You can:
1) Send us the code so we can analyze it.
2) Enable PostgreSQL query logging and check the query sent by psycopg.
3) I feel you're doing something wrong with the '\' in the regular
expression. Can you should us the Python of the execute() call?
