Thanks for the update.

I meant to ask if the patch could potentially change the behavior
described in that documentation.  Would you mind double-checking that?

For example, it says:

  If the output character set is ommited from the LANG variable, the
  default codepage is ALWAYS taken from the operating system (e.g. the
  codepage setting from locale.alias is always ignored, so "russian"
  stays just for "ru_RU" and not for "ru_RU.ISO-8859-5"); you may want
  to set it just if you want to override the active OS/2 codepage.
