Thunderbird (+OOo) locale problem(s) in edgy

I have been struggling to get my edgy installs sorted with my GB locale.
Despite consistently choosing United Kingdom locale (en-gb) settings,
KDE set my locale to en-us. After setting my kde locale (for each
individual user) to en-gb settings, I found that Open Office still
didn't respect that, again setting itself to use US-style dates,
currency etc. That was straightforward to correct (although
time-consuming, having to manually alter each of 6 users OOo preferences
on 3 seperate pc's). (mind you, the fonts are headache-inducing still!)
However I am stuck trying to get Thunderbird to use GB-style dates (ie
1st April 2004 = 1/4/04 rather than the US version 4/1/04), despite
having thunderbird-locale-en-gb installed, and Thunderbird correctly
spell-checking using English/United Kingdom. Does anyone know how to fix
Thunderbird to get it to respect my locale settings with respect to date
display OR to manually hack them?
Although I've used Kubuntu from Hoary onwards, I have never spent so
much time on launchpad before ;) !
