Moving around between countries in Europe (UK <-> Belgium <-> France <->
Germany <-> Switzerland <-> Austria), I get all sorts of weird results
for locales when I change the timezone from UK to anything else and back

  Changing country leads to invalid locale

Status in kde-runtime package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  New installation of Kubuntu 14.04 and upgraded via kubuntu-ppa.
  Initially, country is set to "United States". The locale settings are
  the following:

  ~/.kde/env$ cat 
  export LANG=en_US.UTF-8 
  export LANGUAGE=en:el:en 
  export LC_NUMERIC=en_US.UTF-8 
  export LC_TIME=en_US.UTF-8 
  export LC_MONETARY=en_US.UTF-8 
  export LC_PAPER=en_US.UTF-8 
  export LC_NAME=en_US.UTF-8 
  export LC_ADDRESS=en_US.UTF-8 
  export LC_TELEPHONE=en_US.UTF-8 
  export LC_MEASUREMENT=en_US.UTF-8 

  Then, I change Country to Greece, via System Settings. Locale changes
  as follows:

  export LANG=en_GR.UTF-8 
  export LANGUAGE=en:el:en 
  export LC_NUMERIC=en_GR.UTF-8 
  export LC_TIME=en_GR.UTF-8 
  export LC_MONETARY=en_GR.UTF-8 
  export LC_PAPER=en_GR.UTF-8 
  export LC_NAME=en_GR.UTF-8 
  export LC_ADDRESS=en_GR.UTF-8 
  export LC_TELEPHONE=en_GR.UTF-8 
  export LC_MEASUREMENT=en_GR.UTF-8 

  As far as I know, en_GR.UTF-8 is not a valid entry. A severe loss of
  functionality is that accents cannot be set properly to greek vowels.
  Changing manually to:

  export LANG=el_GR.UTF-8 
  export LANGUAGE=en:el:en 
  export LC_NUMERIC=el_GR.UTF-8 
  export LC_TIME=el_GR.UTF-8 
  export LC_MONETARY=el_GR.UTF-8 
  export LC_PAPER=el_GR.UTF-8 
  export LC_NAME=el_GR.UTF-8 
  export LC_ADDRESS=el_GR.UTF-8 
  export LC_TELEPHONE=el_GR.UTF-8 
  export LC_MEASUREMENT=el_GR.UTF-8 

  solves the issue.
