Comment 3 Mike McLean 2002-12-20 01:18:37 UTC
did not repeat when I restarted the testcase on the same machine.

Comment 4 Michael Fulbright 2002-12-27 15:58:37 UTC
Oh dear.

Will leave this around in case it happens again.

Comment 5 Mike McLean 2003-01-02 21:01:18 UTC
Happened again.  Different machine (First time was a Proliant DL380 G2, this
time was an older Proliant DL380).  

This was with Phoebe public beta 1.  Exact same testcase, though:

Comment 7 Michael Fulbright 2003-01-02 21:57:12 UTC
Ok will investigate further.

Comment 8 Mike McLean 2003-01-07 18:37:54 UTC
also observed with
* full workstation german nfs tui
* full server german nfs tui

note that all observed cases are nfs tui installs.  I also have yet to see this
on an english or japanese language install.

Comment 9 Michael Fulbright 2003-01-10 21:04:14 UTC
This was triggered by slang calling setlocale.

We've worked around it in python land.

Comment 10 Mike McLean 2003-01-14 00:58:24 UTC
fix verified in -re0113.0
