alter database testdb set lc_monetary(or numeric) to
'Finnish_Finland.65001' returns:
ERROR:  invalid value for parameter "lc_monetary": "Finnish_Finland.65001"

However, I noticed that both lc_collate and lc_ctype are set to
Finnish_Finland.1252 by the installer. Should I have just run initdb
with --locale fi_FI.UTF8 at the very start? The to_char('L') works
fine with a database with win1252 encoding.
