I had kpowerdaemon (or something similarly called) still installed, which might have triggered the creation after login.

$ cat /etc/locale.gen | grep -v "#"
reportbug reports the following settings:
Locale: LANG=de_DE@euro, LC_CTYPE=de_DE.UTF-8 (charmap=UTF-8)
I didn't try installing another desktop like gnome.
But, now I just tried resetting my LC_MESSAGES (being default C)
$ LC_MESSAGES=de_DE kwrite
and this gives me a perfect German environment for kwrite.
So I guess that would solve my problem.
Now, am I being unreasonable asking for a consistent useage of languages, or is it a bug?
