this is not bug

you can try use a system variable PGCLIENTENCODING

bash-4.2$ PGCLIENTENCODING='latin2' psql postgres
psql (9.1.1)
Type "help" for help.

postgres=# show client_encoding ;
(1 row)

other way is connect with "only ascii" user name, changing encoding
and changin current role

SET role TO specialcharsrole;
