LANG=de_DE breaks several apps -> general problem ?

Hello !
I noticed that setting LANG=de_De in /etc/environment breaks several
apps (reproducible) on my LX:
expr (from shellutils, noticed in XFree 4 startup)
mc   (reading files inside a tar archive)
mutt (reading mails)

With LANG=C everything works just dandy.

Does anyone experience something simmilar ? Otherwise I probably have
to fill several bug reports (did that already for expr).

My system is a partial woody, mostly potato system.
