OK, I probably had it coming ;)
Obviously you can't create a database with the character set WIN1252 and
then set the collation of a column to WIN1250 or PXW_PLK. No wonder the
only result you get is an error message.
So my last question was plain stupid, but updating RDB$COLLATION_ID and
then a backup-restore is still a temptation...
