Um, are you running these from the same console? I just tried it, and it
works just fine with both mingw and the msvc version, started from the
normal commandprompt.
Note that it is an option you can set on the shortcut used to start the
commandprompt (for example, both cygwin and visual studio turns it off
on their commandprompts, for some reason). I think this is where your
issue is, and not in psql.
