This. Everything you know about Unix? Throw it out the window when
you're using GNOME. GNOME takes over everything, and makes you do
it all GNOME's way. You have control of nothing.
hmm. I am trying to understand what GNOME does under the hood, in this case, if possible. Right now, console (ctl+alt+F3) and gnome terminal gives different locales, I would like to fix that :)
