character 0x9d of encoding "WIN1252" has no equivalent in "UTF8"

Hi Guys:

Recently upgrade to postgres 8.3 and I'm getting these errors now wherever I had "uncode = true" on the PgSQL driver and foreign language characters like chinese and russian were being retrieved.

Once I turn off unicode on the connection object, the errors go away, but the text is no longer in the proper language. Can you offer any assistance?

Please send me (alexeyman*crlab*com) a small test project to reproduce the problem.
It is desirable to use 'emp' and 'dept' database objects, otherwise include the
definition of your own database objects.
Do not use third party components.
If it is impossible for you to create the test project, send us a piece of
your code where the error occurs.
