Yep, and exporting my data, deleting the data directory, running initdb
with --locale=C fixd the problem for me. Woot!

But given what you've said, Tatsuo, it makes me wonder if it's worth it
to use the system locale default when running initdb? Maybe it'd make
more sense for PostgreSQL to default to C unless someone specifies
another --locale?

Thanks for the help, everyone,
