You are right, this is a good question.  There has been another report
about the same issue, so we have to understand why it happens.  At the
moment, I can only think of this scenario:
  * installation in German
  * after installation is complete, run 'dpkg-reconfigure locales' and
    select en_US.
Is this what happened?  If not, can you please describe how to reproduce
your settings?
