Please confirm that the variable LANGUAGE is not set.

I always wonder about the info documentation in libc:

`LC_ALL'
     This is not an environment variable; it is only a macro that you
     can use with `setlocale' to set a single locale for all purposes.
     Setting this environment variable overwrites all selections by the
     other `LC_*' variables or `LANG'.

The first part says it is not an environment variable, the second part
says the opposite.

a) Otto, what happens if you change the test to use LANG or LANGUAGE instead
   of LC_ALL?
b) Does something change if you use fi_FI.ISO8859-1 for all LC_*
   entries (try LANG=fi_FI.ISO8859-1)?
