   What I discovered was that the problem in the IJS interface was the
   decimal "," instead of a "." (I don't remember abny other problems
   with the locale stuff). So LC_NUMERIC should work. I donīt really
   know why I have used LC_ALL. But test it to be absolutely sure.

I'm willing to make that change in 5.0 if there's anyone around to
test it thoroughly (I don't use the IJS driver myself).  As for the
Postscript driver in both 4.2 and 5.0, Frank needs to test my patch.
If that solves his problem, I'll certainly put it in 4.2.7.

I don't think 4.2.7 will be out in time for the GIMP 2.0 release,
based on the timeline I'm seeing.  We're gated by an OS X issue.  I
think that everything else we need is already in (other than this one
problem that Frank reported).
