locale.getlocale() sometimes returns (None, None) under OSX (Python 2, not sure about Python 3, but I think so). The problem is outlined here:

What is the cause of this? Is it limited to just Darwin systes? Does the 'horrible hack' solution on OS have any drawbacks? I like it better because it is not needed to set the LC_ALL environment variable prior to starting the Python program.




All right, but apart from the sanitation, the medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, a 

fresh water system, and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?
