Hi Robert

it's a two-way thing - nobody is paying me to write any bug reports, I'm
also volunteering my time and effort. Not just to PHP, but too quite a
few projects.  Fobbing people off like "jani" did me, is just not
conducive to getting better bugreports nor to improving the project in

HOWEVER - I've been studying the issue a bit more, and it appears that
it IS indeed the responsibility of the application to call 

setlocale(LC_ALL, "");

to become portable to all locales.  Definitely not what I would have
expected, but it's difficult to ignore the setlocale() man page:
