Does this mean I have to initdb my cluster again?  I tried to do this on 
windows with 'initdb --encoding=LATIN1' but it hang on 'selecting default 
max_connections ...'  I'm looking into this now.  Not sure if it's an 
encoding problem or something else.

What I was wondering was, why does the ODBC driver act differently to Zeos 
or pgAdmin III?  Zeos and pgAdmin both use the libpq client library which I 
suppose is the standard.  Is there a way the ODBC driver could be hacked to 
give the same response as libpq or am I simplifying this too much.
