Thanks, this works great.

Do you have any idea how can I set the calendar in the clock panel
applet to make weeks start on Mondays instead of Sundays? When I run
an all-pl-PL.UTF-8 locale the weeks start on Mondays, but as soon as
I put LC_MESSAGES=en_GB.UTF-8 in .gnomerc, weeks start on Sundays again
(while displaying Polish month names and Polish date in the tooltip, so
LC_TIME seems to be set to pl_PL.UTF-8).
