I guess I will see that in the next pretest, as the diffs for that
commit still seem to allow for "locale -a" to be invoked.

If you mean the message strings (as in error messages etc.), I'm not
sure I understand.  The translations should depend on the current
locale, not on a locale the code sets forcibly.  The code where I made
the change sets the locale to en_US.UTF-8, and if that fails, to just
en_US.  If the locale is not an English one, but, say, French or
German, how can that code produce the expected translations to French
or German?  What am I missing here?
