I'm not sure de-DE.UTF-8@euro even makes sense.  By specifying the
charset as UTF-8, you know the Euro symbol is available.

I've only ever seen tne "euro" locale modifier used to change the
charset of a locale, e.g.:

	de_DE		ISO 8859-1
	de_DE@euro	ISO 8859-15

Are you sure your locale setting is really sensible?
