OK, I got it. mkshort greps iso_3166.tab for all country codes found
in the supported locales for each given language.
When it comes to "serbian" (sr) the only supported locales are sr_YU
However, YU is no more a valid iso-3166 code and then grepping this
code in iso_3166.tab gives a non null exit code....and as we run with
"set -e", the script exist immediately.
Thus, I replaced:
line=`grep -e "^$code" $ISO3166TAB`
line=`grep -e "^$code" $ISO3166TAB` || line=''
and the script appears OK now.
No idea whether this is clean shell-scripting though...
