Please file this as a bug report on the libc6.1 package, then.

FWIW, I can reproduce this bug on my alpha as well (also an ev56).  But I
can't reproduce it when I also set LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/debug, that
should make this interesting to diagnose...

I would be inclined to call it "important" rather than serious.  I think
even Japanese now defaults to UTF-8 encoding in the installer, so would
argue that a bug that only occurs with the intersection of one particular
architecture and one particular non-default locale which should be
considered deprecated (due to interoperability problems with data created in
other recommended locales) should not be considered release-critical.

Hrm?  What terminals are you using that aren't UTF8-capable?
