Description Daniel Walsh 2013-11-04 15:55:05 EST
I was playing around with /etc/locale.conf at one point and added the following LANG entry.

more /etc/locale.conf 
LANG=en_EN.utf8

This caused systemd to set the LANG variable before starting a service.
When I started libvirtd it would fail without putting out any message even in debug mode.

I eventually replaced libvirtd with a script that did an strace of libvirtd to figure out what was going on.
