You still haven't answered whether you're using any output handler, and
if so which one.  I use

Very strange, the only additional function overloaded is mail() and that
shouldn't stop you using echo.

As well as setting the internal encoding and enabling it with
    mbstring.encoding_translation = On
   mbstring.internal_encoding = UTF-8

I would also use:
    mbstring.language = English 
    ; or German in your case
    mbstring.detect_order = UTF-8,eucjp-win,sjis-win
    mbstring.http_input = UTF-8,SJIS,EUC-JP
    mbstring.http_output = UTF-8

> Is it possible for mbstring to overload the pg-functions I need?
 No, and it shouldn't be needed. Those functions should be UTF-8 enabled
in order to communicate with the database and supply the correct data

  You're still referring to 'UTF8' which as I pointed out isn't the
official name of the encoding system.  I have no idea if PHP will
recognise  it, but to be safe I suggest you use the official 'UTF-8'
(hyphen between letters and number) in case it's causing problems.
  The other thing to be wary of, is output to the console. Some OSes do
not support unicode in the console.  So unless you're certain yours does,
I wouldn't use it as a test.
