postgresql server starts with environment:


I've tried to set different LC_COLLATE/LC_ALL/LANG settings
but it did not help.

I've tried to change my psql input to unicode russian, but it did not help, too.

'show all' says I've got lc_collate  and other lc_* set to en_US.UTF-8.
initdb was run with this locale.
It cannot be modified setting it in postgresql.conf (creation db constant?)
Should I reinit database to get this working or what?
If I should reinit db, what locale should I choose?

BTW, ~* syntax does not also work with upper/lower case russian letters,
while upper()/lower() still work ok.
