I see a lot of error messages (.e.g in .xsession-errors or when starting 
up xemacs) like:

X Windows does not support locale 'de_DE@euro'

Language settings in the installer was german (+us english)

Jakub, you're the one who knows the locale stuff for glibc. Could you please
give some feedback on how to match X locales with these?
