Nope, everything looks fine, except probably the "LC_CTYPE" should be
"lc_ctype" (I'm not sure that we have case-insensitive property names).
Alternatively you can try using "encoding" (also lowercase).

If that does not help, I would need some reproducable test case (if data in
the database and your Hibernate code are not secret, you can send me
database and code).
