I think no change has been made between 6.5.2 and 6.5.3 regarding MB.
Can you send me the KOI8 data and WIN data that is supposed to be
correct? I will check it out on a FreeBSD 3.2 machine.

No, you cannot do this. If you want to use traditional Chinese, you
have to make a database with EUC_TW (initdb -e EUC_TW) then set the
PGCLIENTENCODING environment variable to BIG5 on the client side. See
doc/README.mb for more details.

Maybe initdb should reject BIG5. I will do it in for the next release.
