BUG(?): clients fails if locale is not available

Hi subversion devs,

I'm a Debian developer who is helping out with the subversion packages. This
bug was reported some time ago, but I'm not sure if it's really a bug
(maybe this is the intended behavior).

It seems feasible to expect that if the locale was set incorrectly or
unavailable that subversion would fall back to the equivalent LANG=C or
something.

What do you all think?
