Package: locales
Version: 2.1.1-5.1
Severity: important

Somehow this NMU broke locales for me.  Perl now complains:

$ perl -e ''
perl: warning: Setting locale failed.
perl: warning: Please check that your locale settings:
	LC_ALL = (unset),
	LANG = "da_DK"
    are supported and installed on your system.
perl: warning: Falling back to the standard locale ("C").

The strange thing is that the locale files all seem to be in place (and

$ ls /usr/share/locale/da_DK -l
total 46
-rw-r--r--   1 root     root        30594 May 16 09:29 LC_COLLATE
-rw-r--r--   1 root     root        10428 May 16 09:29 LC_CTYPE
drwxr-xr-x   2 root     root         1024 May 17 01:28 LC_MESSAGES
-rw-r--r--   1 root     root           94 May 16 09:29 LC_MONETARY
-rw-r--r--   1 root     root           27 May 16 09:29 LC_NUMERIC
-rw-r--r--   1 root     root          484 May 16 09:29 LC_TIME

Also, the "date" command is no longer localized (my usual test for working

$ set|egrep '^(LANG|LC_.*)'
$ date

I'm pretty sure that this is due to the new locale package, as this started
happening right after the new package was unpacked.
