Since you are using 7.1, you will need to ensure that your database is 
created with the correct character set.  If you issue the sql statement: 
select getdatabaseencoding(); in psql this will show you what character 
set your database was created with.  To store the german special 
characters you should ensure that your database is created with the 
LATIN1 character set.
