                        POSTGRESQL BUG REPORT TEMPLATE
Your name               :   Jan Poslusny
Your email address      :   pajout(at)gingerall(dot)cz
System Configuration
  Architecture (example: Intel Pentium)         :    Intel Pentium
  Operating System (example: Linux 2.0.26 ELF)  :    Linux 2.4.20-8
  PostgreSQL version (example: PostgreSQL-7.3.4):    PostgreSQL-7.3.4
  Compiler used (example:  gcc 2.95.2)          :    gcc 3.2.2
Please enter a FULL description of your problem:
I initialized dbcluster with --locale=cs_CZ.UTF-8 and created database 
with --encoding=unicode. Following script generates error:
-- -*- coding: iso-8859-2 -*-
set client_encoding to LATIN2;
create table t (txt text);
--inserted character is latin small letter r with caron, coded in iso 
8859-2; escaped as \370
insert into t values ('ř');
insert into t values ('\\@');
-- end of script
, generates
psql:test.sql:7: invalid command \
psql:test.sql:9: ERROR:  parser: unterminated quoted string at or near "'
commit;" at character 52
. I think this is a bug, because the script is syntactically OK and work 
fine on database with server_encoding=latin2.
Please describe a way to repeat the problem.   Please try to provide a
concise reproducible example, if at all possible:
 Above example is reproducible.
If you know how this problem might be fixed, list the solution below:
 Perhaps lc_ctype=cs_CZ.UTF-8 is used when script is read.
