If you look at i18n you will see worse problems.

But we are stuck with what is there as far as woody is concerned.  We can
only do what we can given the restrictions imposed by a (hopefully)
imminent release.  We have made quite a lot of progess, at least a
stand-alone first CD does work, but it is far from perfect.  I cannot say
that I am happy with the situation.  Bitching about this situation has a
theraputic value, but it is not going to change anything.
