That is what I get too. So, since I'm going to have to spell it out for you, I figured I'd carry the
little test code over to a Solaris machine. Well, same result there too. *damn* Tried the man page on
the Solaris box, and it tells me that the defaults for the "C" locale should be empty strings, just
like we are getting. The Linux man pages don't mention the expected values afaik.

*slaps forehead* Sheesh. Sorry for the false alarm. We'll fix this for v6.3...

[Marc, we should have this working for the release. Will update docs in the next few minutes then
work on a patch from a clean source tree]

I'm focused on getting Postgres out the door, but will follow up on this with you in a few days, OK?

I'd like to do an install of your Postgres-6.3 package on my RH5.0 machine before you finalize your
package. If there are any last-minute problems we can fix them in the source tree and give you a
fresh tree for release.

Thanks again for all your help.
