Nice sample.
Perhaps you can use a DSN connection and in the PostgreSQL ODBC Driver setup for the connection turn on 
Or you can use the ODBC Administrator, under the tracing tab, Start Tracing.
Or in the server postgresql.conf temporarily turn the logging on for all statements, to capture lower 
level ODBC communication.

Do the ODBC connection encoding, and the database encoding match?

This works normally under PGadmin and even on other databases via ODBC. Am I overlooking something or might this be a bug?
