Is your database compiled for multibyte support?  And what character set 
is the database you are connecting to created with?  (to get the 
database character set do a 'psql -l').  If the answer to the first 
question is no or the answer to the second question is 'SQL_ASCII', then 
only 7bit characters are supported.
