Short answer is not to set any of LC_* as system wide.
Since I like console to use English (UTF-8 so en_US.UTF-8) and X to use
use several locales such as en_US.UTF-8 and ja_JP.UTF-8, I let gdm
change locale. If you want to run any program under fancy locale, you
can do it by:
$ LANG=somelocale somecommand
