Nearly two years ago.  Phrases like "just now" certainly take on a
different flavor in the face of permanent archival ...

} I'm think seeing the same behavior in current CVS.

I'm not able to reproduce it with the latest CVS on my RHEL4 machine, or
at least I can't do so with the most straightforward interpretation of
"LC_ALL starts out set".

If it is happening, it has to be related to this (params.c):

    lc_allsetfn(Param pm, char *x)
	strsetfn(pm, x);
	if (!x) {
	    setlocale(LC_ALL, x);
