Unicode characters greater than or equal to 0x10000 are not supported

Hi All,
I am using postgres 7.4.6 on red hat linux 9. I have created a database with encoding "Unicode" and when I try to insert a row containing chinese characters into a table(using ado.net 1.1) I am getting the error
"Unicode characters greater than or equal to 0x10000 are not supported "

can any one help me in solving this problem.
does postgres 7.4.6 supports unicode characters??

Thanks in Advance
