I use this on my machine and have the locale set correctly to this value
when starting GDM. From what I could see, gnome-session reads the LANG=
variable and uses its value. I have set GNOME up so that all system fonts
are set to the fixed-misc USC version and it seems to work fine. The only
problem I have found is with the Unicode TTF fonts - mkttfdir doesn't
generate correct fonts.dir file for those AFAICT - all entries have their
charset set to ISO-8859-1 in the generated file.
