setlocale() is a python thing.  It wraps a C library, and that function

across threads.  Setlocale() is used by Zope to set the locale in

I found my own way to work around it (see other messages in this
thread), though you're right, I didn't think of looking at the Zope 3
packages (I'm using Zope 2.10, so that should be an option for me).
