Just installed Galaxy locally and ran "sh run.sh" for the first time.

The web page on gave this error:

ValueError: expected only letters, got ' en'

This was from line 762 in core.py
(in /opt/galaxy-dist/eggs/Babel-0.9.4-py2.6.egg/babel)

if not lang.isalpha()
        raise ValueError('expected only letters, got %r' % lang)

So, the workaround is to insert a line before:

lang = lang.strip()

Then it worked :)
