This might help you a bit on the way. I don't know about the messages

Sorry, I get the man pages in German then. Unacceptable.
Then you should set LC_MESSAGES=C, which overrides LANG. (LC_MESSAGES
doesn't override LC_ALL, though.)
Yes, this works for me. And by specifying all LC_*'s but LC_ALL in
/etc/envirinment I got xterm working with scands, too.
Now my /etc/environment looks like
And 'locale' in ANY terminal or console gives the same.
Stefan: You might try replacing all "fi_FI" instances with "de_DE", and
see if this could fix your man page problem (NOTE: LC_MESSAGES=C).
This also fixed a problem where backspace printed some weird stuff in
the login prompt.
BUT: One thing got even more messed up now: euro support. Now I am
unable to print the euro symbol in both X and consoles/terminals. Even
the euro-test program can't make it work (it did before).
Another thing is funny, though: my slashes (/ and \) are as high as
non-capital letters, cute! :).
Thanks everyone for your help!
I sent a short note about separating keymap and language during package
