[postgis-users] encoding and german umlaute

I'm using postgresql and manifold GIS. With manifold 8.0.8 connecting to my
postgres-Database shows scrambled german Umlaute (ä, ö, ü, ß, and so on) in
text fields. 
Connecting with manifold 8.0.7 the text is shown correct like in pgadmin:
"Fläche für die Landwirtschaft"
Connecting with manifold 8.0.8 the text is shown as: "Fläche für die

Maybe there is a solution on the postgres side. Are there any tutorials on
the setup of encoding to allow german umlaute?
What configuration would german users use when installing postgresql 8.3.3:
initdb locale, encoding ... ?
Which encoding I have to use on database creation? 
What is setting client_encoding about?
