Peter,

In US distributions it's a recent thing.   The switch to non-C locales is a 
recent thing; RH Enterprise 3.0, and SuSE 9.0.  But I expect in Europe you've 
been using non-C locales for a while.

I'd like to have an explanation of this somewhere else newbies are liable to 
read it, *before* their first production "LIKE" query doesn't use an index.  
Where would be appropriate?

And, for English speakers, what exactly is wrong with using 'C' locale instead 
of the environment one?
