Bug#369395: openssh-server: should /etc/pam.d/ssh read /etc/default/locale?

Package: openssh-server
Version: 1:4.3p2-2
Severity: normal


since the LC_* settings were moved from /etc/environment to
/etc/default/locale pam_env no longer reads and sets them.
See /usr/share/doc/locales/NEWS.Debian.gz for more information.
Perhaps the pam_env settings in /etc/pam.d/ssh should be changed to take
this into account.
/etc/pam.d/login is reading /etc/default/locale in addition to
/etc/environment and could be used as an example.

BTW, which variables take precedence - those set by pam_env or the
variables transmitted from the client via SendEnv/AcceptEnv?
