thank you anyway for not ignoring me anymore :-)

cat /etc/environment

gives nothing, it's empty.

As far as I remember you said I have to go to the ubntu list, as it's a ubuntu problem. Or may be I'm mixing up. Some mails are classified as spam, so I skip many of them. Sorry for that.
If I've got a definit answer I wouldn't "complain"

So you've seen my nice screenshot :-) it's worth a babylon prise. For those who didn't part of the translations are in arabic, part in german and part in bulgarian. The last two I speak, also the kde configuration has them listed in this way - but the first one is boring

I setup LC_ALL=C. It's english but it's consistant.

Don't understand how it's possible that debian does not have this symptoms.

Sorry again if I haven't seen your mail and complained again, but as you see we've got a progress. 

Thanks anyway and my apologies again
