Thanks for pointing out this, you are right. Only @.* is currently stripped.
For that reason, 'british' is selected because 'en_AU' is found first as a
possibility for 'en', so iamerican is not tried. Exact match failed before
because of the dot+charset.

Fixed dictionaries-common package (0.70.10) uploaded to sid this morning
with medium urgency.

Yes, LANG is looked first if /etc/default/locale is there.

No need for that (I hope), thanks for the feedback.
