What is this supposed to mean? The "@euro" seems completely superfluous.
It was used in "fr_FR@euro" to change the default encoding from
ISO-8859-1 to ISO-8859-15, but since you use UTF-8, it's useless.

If this is so, then the code didn't call setlocale in the right way for
this piece of code.

It's not libc6, as it works. It's a communication problem of the GIMP
components then. They always have to use the same locale. (Therefore it
would be best to internally use the C locale for exchange, but this a
philosophical question and should be of no concern to the user anyway.)
