It sounds like your picking up standard adobe symbol encodings for your
high bit characters (both a-umlaut, and TM are located at \0228 in
iso8859-1/15 and "symbol", respectively).  Perhaps trying to change the
font used by pgaccess will help (make sure to choose the proper
encoding; don't let it default to whatever...)?
