Where/how do you set $LANGUAGE? I can't find "en" (without an additional
qualifier) in /usr/share/i18n/SUPPORTED, therefore I suspect that this
might be the reason for your problem. You check this by unsetting this
and testing if that makes any difference. Once you have figured out which
setting causes the problem you have to find out where it gets set. A
likely candidate is /etc/environment.
