The 'offending' locale setting is LC_TIME. I could be even worse how
it changes format depending on how old the files are:
pma-20% LC_TIME=en_US ls -ld debian design
drwxrwsr-x 4 brother brother 4096 06-27 11:22 debian
drwxrwsr-x 2 brother brother 4096 2001-03-05 design
But we all know that if you want to parse output from programs you
better set LC_ALL to C or POSIX, so only previously broken programs
will see this change.
