The last upload of locales seems to not work on i386; I have
set in the envronment, and these settings seem not to be taken
into account anymore (2.1.1-5.1 is the first version where I
notice this problem).
ltrace shows that setlocale(LC_ALL, "") returns NULL.
strace indicates that the locale files are correctly open:
$ strace -e open =date
open("/usr/share/locale/locale.alias", O_RDONLY) = 3
open("/usr/share/i18n/locale.alias", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
open("/usr/share/locale/fr_FR/LC_MESSAGES", O_RDONLY) = 3
open("/usr/share/locale/fr_FR/LC_MESSAGES/SYS_LC_MESSAGES", O_RDONLY) = 3
open("/usr/share/i18n/fr_FR/LC_MESSAGES", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
open("/usr/share/locale/fr/LC_MESSAGES", O_RDONLY) = 3
open("/usr/share/locale/fr/LC_MESSAGES/SYS_LC_MESSAGES", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
open("/usr/share/i18n/fr/LC_MESSAGES", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
open("/usr/share/locale/fr_FR/LC_MESSAGES/sh-utils.mo", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
open("/usr/share/locale/fr/LC_MESSAGES/sh-utils.mo", O_RDONLY) = 3
open("/etc/localtime", O_RDONLY) = 3
This is right after an apt-get dist-upgrade this morning.
The problem does not show up on Sparc, with the same package
