Subject: gcalctool: Sqrt button works only when LC_ALL=C

Package: gcalctool
Version: 5.6.31-1
Followup-For: Bug #334782


The problem with the Sqrt button occurs when you try to use
LC_ALL=pt_BR.UTF-8. (I don't know if it happens on others locales too,
but when I execute LC_ALL=C gcalctool it works perfectly).

To see the bug, try:
1) Press the Sqrt button (in pt_BR it's named Raiz).
2) Type, for example, "2".
3) Close the function pressing ")".
4) Calculate with "=".

If you try on LC_ALL=C, it works as expected, if you try on
LC_ALL=pt_BR.UTF-8, it says "Expressão mal formada" (probably "Malformed
expression" in LC_ALL=C).

I think this is a grave bug, and I think it's related with the fact that
the button is named "Raiz" instead of "Sqrt". After fixing this bug,
couldn't you put an universal square root simbol? ;-).
