Character conversion issues while upgrading database

P: n/a

We're upgrading an old 7.0 database to 7.3. The old 7.0 database has some
high bit characters which we will assume are Latin9. We're trying to upload
into a 7.3 UNICODE database. Normal pg_dump -> psql.

At first we had the problem where it considered every highbit character to
be a unicode sequence. So we've added:

set client_encoding=latin9;
\encoding latin9

which solves most of the problems, however it *still* complains about some
unicode sequences, even though we told it there wern't any. Also, it seems
to lose track of the columns, as \copy spits out 'missing data for column

We tried recode but it similar issues. Any ideas?
