Thanks, you are right!

The main problem was that I had not enabled the multibyte support for
database. (I believe fairytale and supposed that correct locale
setting will be enough.)

So my humble wish is that the instructions in the INSTALL file should be

          Allows the use of multibyte character encodings. This is
          primarily for languages like Japanese, Korean, and Chinese. Read
          the Administrator's Guide for details.

I think that this is a little bit missleading. 

There is correct information in the Administrator's Guide, so I should
have to read the Guide, but but... The world would be much better place,
if there is little mention in the installation instruction that this
concerns also 8-bit chars...

But anyway, it works now very fine, thanks!
