Why do cyrillic characters in Postgres from ESRI Pers. (mdb) via ogr look like '???'?

P: n/a
I have a ESRI personal geodb with Cyrillic, chinese and arabic characters that will not, no matter what client encoding I choose, transfer nicely to PostGIS db. I am using ogr2ogr tools. I am on a windows 7 64 box running 32 bit software (Office 2007, Postgres 1.12.0, with FWtools.) PostGIS db is UTF8 encoding. default for client is the same. I have tried all Cyrillic encodings within FW and PG. I have tried several others as well all to no avail. All i care about really is the Cyr. characters, but they always question my intent with '????????'. Ideas anyone?
