Bug#259423: xclock does not use locales with strftime

Package: xbase-clients
Version: 4.3.0.dfsg.1-4
Severity: normal

    Hi !

    I've found some problems with xclock... When I launch

xclock -update 1 -digital -strftime "%A %e %B %Y %T"

    with proper locales environment variables set, xclock does not uses
    locales whereas the strftime function seems to be used : it displays
    the current date, but in english, which is not the locale I set up
    in my configuration (see below).

    I think that a

    setlocale(LC_TIME, "");

    or something equivalent in the initialization code should make the
    difference (or even with LC_ALL after all)...

    System informations :
