Yes, it was failing to call setlocale().  It also has some problems related
to calculating string lengths which are non-fatal but irritating.  And it
turns out that whiptail's own messages are not internationalised, so 
things like the "Yes / No" buttons show up in English regardless of locale.

Right now, since stability is our main concern, I agree.  I'll file some
bugs against newt in hopes that we might be able to get modconf i18n'd in
a woody point release.
