Don't know if this will be of any help to you, but you can configure locales in debian with "dpkg-reconfigure locales" command. Try unchecking all the locales you don't need.

the ro_RO locale is broken (known bug).
If you don't need that locale, don't include it amongst those locales that are to be generated.

//edit: missed above that dpkg-reconfigure locales isn't working: try reinstalling the locales package?

You didn't say what branch (stable, testing or unstable) you're using. How about installing the locales package from another branch, then unchecking the broken locale and then reinstalling the locales package from the branch you're using?

You shouldn't be "generating" all the locales, only the ones you select in a
'dpkg-reconfigure locales'.

start from scratch:

apt-get -y remove --purge locales
apt-get clean

apt-get -y install locales
dpkg-reconfigure locales

Choose, if you are an american, all the instances of en_US with the space bar.
Prss Enter. It will only generate the ones for en_US, choose en_US for the default environment. That should do it.

Later on, on your spare time, google 'localepurge' it will save you tons of space.
