Hm, I'm not entirely sure that it has been. The original code supposed
that the locale name is spelled "Norwegian (Bokmål)_Norway", and the
recent patch you mention extended that to allow "Norwegian Bokmål_Norway".
But this report, if accurate, shows yet another variant. Skjalg,
would you confirm that there's a comma and space before "Norway" in
the locale name as you see it? (Your log clearly shows it with a
space in the registry entries, but it looks like initdb might be
seeing it as not having any spaces, which is why I'm confused.)
I wonder whether we need to relax the matching code to be entirely
agnostic about spaces and punctuation in the Windows locale name.
