I don't think setlocale() solves the problem.  I believe it's the case
that setlocale(LC_...,"") uses the LC_*/LANG environment variables (as
opposed to setting them); and that nothing setlocale() does is inherited
through an exec*() call.

Dan Astoorian               People shouldn't think that it's better to have
Sysadmin, CSLab             loved and lost than never loved at all.  It's
djast at cs.toronto.edu        not, it's better to have loved and won.  All
www.cs.toronto.edu/~djast/  the other options really suck.    --Dan Redican
