I just bumped into this: installed Fedora 19, updated all packages, and the first thing I did was to change LANG=en_US.UTF-8 to LANG=en_US.iso88591 in /etc/locale.conf.  After rebooting the system, when I log into GNOME Shell with my regular user and execute "locale" I still see the old en_US.UTF-8.  I could change the locale thru my user's .bashrc but that would affect only the bash session.

Is there any update on this? A "can't reproduce", "wont fix in F19", "known issue" etc would be enough.
