Hi,

locale.getlocale() sometimes returns (None, None) under OSX (Python 2, not sure about Python 3, but I think so). The problem is outlined here:
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1629699/locale-getlocale-problems-on-osx

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.

Regards,

Albert-Jan
