I wasn't that satisfied with the patch; it had some further cases where it
wouldn't work. LANG=C wasn't treated correctly among others. Furthermore I
wanted to get rid of some code-duplication.
So patch is fixed up and pushed to bzr as well as uploaded to kubuntu-
experimental. The patch is now at the state where I personally believe in it!
Please everyone, give it a test; install the package create a new user and
test that it works.
