Short Description
pltcl bug with multibyte support

Long Description
I have a database with KOI8 encoding, many tables names and fields names contain cyrillic characters.
And I have a trigger on pltcl with the following code:
CREATE or replace FUNCTION log_event() RETURNS opaque AS '
  foreach fld [array names NEW] {
    elog DEBUG "field=${fld}"
return OK
' LANGUAGE 'pltcl';
In postgres 7.1 everything worked well, but in 7.2 I am getting an errors:
"NOTICE:  utf_to_local: could not convert UTF-8 ..." for every field whose 
name contains cyrillic characters. In postgresql.log there are string 
field=<field name> for every field whose name doesn't contain  cyrillic characters
and string field= for every field whose name contains cyrillic characters.
I removed converting utf to local code from pltcl.c (just replacing 
and now everything works well as it was in postgresql 7.1
My environment:
Debian Linux, Postgresql version 7.2.1 compiled with multibyte support 
(--enable-unicode-conversion, --enable-multibyte, --enable-locale), 
tcl version 8.3

Sample Code
