Bug#519474: More information on X11 locale troubles

This seems to be due to a change in the locale.dir file. Doing grep "fi_FI\\.UTF-8" on lenny's version (1.1.5-2) shows:

en_US.UTF-8/XLC_LOCALE                  fi_FI.UTF-8
en_US.UTF-8/XLC_LOCALE:                 fi_FI.UTF-8

While the same command for sid (1.2-1) shows:

fi_FI.UTF-8/XLC_LOCALE                  fi_FI.UTF-8
fi_FI.UTF-8/XLC_LOCALE:                 fi_FI.UTF-8

However, the fi_FI.UTF-8 directory does not actually exist.

This causes other kinds of funny behavior too - I noticed that sawfish stopped displaying window titles and crashed when starting ltris.

As a workaround, set LC_CTYPE to en_US.UTF-8.
