The short answer is it's all a house of cards, and if you troll
the archives you will find plenty of bug reports traceable to
misconfiguration in this area.  The recent attempt to enforce
that nl_langinfo(CODESET) matches the database encoding is a first
step towards making this more bulletproof, but we're finding out
that even that is harder than it looks.
