AFAIK PostgreSQL will determine its own locale from the system locale 
when it's initdb'ed for the first time, that locale will then be used 
for all databases even if you later change the system locale.
Perhaps you need to dump your databases and do a new initdb with the 
proper locale set before this starts working the way you want.
