Default postgresql chinese character problem

This is what I get if I try to insert values in chinese, although the database is created with -E utf8:

$ psql a
Welcome to psql 8.2.6, the PostgreSQL interactive terminal.

Type: \copyright for distribution terms
\h for help with SQL commands
\? for help with psql commands
\g or terminate with semicolon to execute query
\q to quit

a=# \encoding
a=# insert into a (aa) values (自由);
ERROR: column "自由" does not exist
LINE 1: insert into a (aa) values (自由);
a=# select * from a;
(6 rows)

As you can see, I inserted some number values just to try if it worked. Only, it does not accept chinese. Any ideas? I'm running the package that comes with OpenBSD 4.3, running in Mlterm. Also see my thread in X11, for problems with character input.
Thank you
