I believe this is the wrong fix.  The locale code should be
'sv_SE@euro' if ISO-8859-15 is needed.  There is no need to list the
charset explicitly, as it will be selected from the SUPPORTED list.

This change isn't needed.

This change is wrong.  Who inserted .ISO-8859-1 there?  As far as I
know it should not be included.
