The way I read this patch we do:
1) Get the time in CP_ACP
2) Convert to UTF16
3) Convert to UTF8
4) If necessary, convert to the charset in the database

We could be more efficient by at least folding 1 and 2 into a single
step, which means getting it in UTF16 from the beginning. How about
attached patch? It builds, but please verify that it fixes the problem.

(I've updated the comment as well)

Attached pg_locale_utf16.patch. I'm also attaching
pg_locale_diffdiff.patch which contains the changes I've made against
your patch only.
