If you do not have a thread aware implementation of "setlocale", then
it is *VERY* dangerous to change "setlocale" inside a thread -- as
changing any global data can lead to non-deterministic behaviour in
a multi-threaded environment unless special precautions (locking) are
Apparently, you are aware of the danger. But, I have not seen
how you avoid the problem in your sketched solution.
