Are you sure that isn't being set by one of the files your shell sources
during initialization?  That was the case for me.

One solution is to set the proper locale in /etc/environment and ensure
/etc/pam.d/*dm uses pam_env (this is what I did).

Another, probably better, solution is to set the proper locale in
~/.xsession since that will affect only you instead of everyone that
uses the computer.
