Here's the diff of mentioned Suse patch, which only modifies
/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/locale/en_US.UTF-8/XLC_LOCALE against the one installed by
xorg-x11 (newly installed v6.8.99.15)
It fixes the problem for me.

Do you know whether this has been pushed upstream?
Comment 3 4nykey 2005-07-21 10:24:12 UTC
No idea, though it seems unlikely.

This thing was bugging quite a few people for some time, only recently mention
of some patch for xorg, dealing with it, popped up on forums, so I googled a bit
and got this.

Please file a bug at and post the URL here. We'll add a
patch once it hits upstream CVS.

Here it is:

Woops, now that I did it, I found #2676 at fdo bugzilla, which seems similar.
Comment 6 Joshua Baergen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-07-23 13:22:17 UTC
Ya, that looks like what you're doing but more inclusive.  I'll reference 2676.
