We've seen that happen before.  As far as I can see it indicates
breakage in the locale library: setlocale(LC_MESSAGES, "")
should work, but it's failing.

I'm not certain this is the total story, since the same failure
has been seen on several platforms and it's hard to believe they
are all brain-damaged.  But I don't really see what we should
do differently.
