Perhaps this file (and the corresponding GDM 2.4 file in ~/.gnome2)
should be added to the language-env tool.

Currently, language-env sets up the environment that your shell uses,
which is why you see the correct locale from inside the terminal (once
you have started a shell).  But gnome-session is started by GDM, not by
your shell, and your gnome desktop is started by gnome-session.

It would also help if GDM sourced /etc/environment and used the settings
there as defaults.
