Or test_logging, test_strptime in that order, with no other tests between
them.  Can someone who understands the intended use of locale (i.e., any
non-American <0.5 wink>) figure out the right thing to do here?  Or is
forcing locale.LC_ALL to "C" at the end of test_logging the right thing
already?  I kinda doubt it, cuz it seems to bode ill if test_strptime fails
"just because" someone changed locale before test_strptime got run.
