I think it's more an issue of accidental breakage than any maliciousness. One 
character in the wrong place in a language bundle somewhere can make the 
difference between success and runtime failure, and it may not be immediately 
apparent when running in unaffected locales. This kind of problem isn't likely 
to result in data loss (or money loss, where money is data, is in Bitcoin), but 
it could be enough to necessitate scrapping the whole release, which would look 
bad and prompt users to question the dev team's quality control process.
