OK, it would seem that some of the encodings listed in
src/backend/utils/mb/encnames.c are not listed as supported on
http://developer.postgresql.org/docs/postgres/multibyte.html (that
includes win1250). I have limited the list to exactly what's in the
documentation.

I cannot repeat that here on XP, however I have seen cases where the SCM
simply disabled an uninstalled service and didn't actually remove it
until sometime later. Could this be what happened in your case?
