After installation of g-s-d in updates-testing ( gnome-settings-daemon-3.8.3-2.fc19.x86_64 ), I found out that my locales are wrong :
$ env | grep LC
the '' are wrong, and that's causing lots of issues.
This is caused by /usr/libexec/gnome-settings-daemon-localeexec and the latest backported patch.
$ gsettings get org.gnome.system.locale region
I think the wrapper script should filter the '.
Seems to be fixed upstream :
Proposing as a final release blocker to make sure we don't pull this into anything, will affect normal system use most likely.

As asked by adam williamson, the main issue caused by tthis are :
- perl software spew 10 to 15 lines of warning, saying they cannot find the local
- man pages are not readable
- mosh, that I use to connect to server, seemed to be broken
- screen ( on a remote session ) was not able to correctly display UTF8
Discussed at 2013-06-17 blocker review meeting: http://meetbot.fedoraproject.org/fedora-blocker-review/2013-06-17/f19final-blocker-review-6.2013-06-17-16.01.log.txt . Per misc's notes that this breaks lots of different apps, we accept this as a blocker under criterion "All applications listed under the Applications menu or category must withstand a basic functionality test and not crash after a few minutes of normal use." on the basis that it's almost certainly affecting something in that set.
gnome-settings-daemon-3.8.3-3.fc19 has been pushed to the Fedora 19 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
