Description

Hello all.

I am wondering if anyone else got this problem.

I was trying different locale settings and tested it with date output.

For the selected locale sl_SI.ISO8859-2 the right date output is:
Pon 24 Apr 2006 13:52:17 CEST (weekday name of the day is Pon as
abbreviated Ponedeljek).

It seems like something about locale got broken between 1.2.6-RELEASE
and 1.4.3-RELEASE+.

There are my tests:
