Sorry for the delay, I can do tests related to this issue only during
"working hours".

I can confirm that LANGUAGE is not set.

If I set LANG = 'C' or LANGUAGE = 'C' in the main.py, test works.

If I do "export LANG=fi_FI.ISO8859-1" in shell and confirm with "locale"
that it is set, the test does not work. Also if I similarly set LC_ALL
to the FI code, test does not work.

And also, setting either LANG or LANGUAGE in shell does not make the
test work (at the same time the main.py sets LC_ALL to C).
