It's been a long time...
GNU Emacs should use LANG *and* LANGUAGE, LANG being a simple
preference set by localeconf (apt-get install localeconf) and LANGUAGE
being a preference list, due to the uncompleteness of several locales.
localeconf will put your system preference where it belongs,
namely /etc/environment. /etc/bash.bashrc is good only for bash, so it is
not a good idea for X11 apps launched for icons and the such.
Please install localeconf and report your /etc/environment, as well
as what you get with M-x getenv LANG under GNU Emacs.
