Thank you for any thoughts.
Redhat has moved into fully supporting unicode UTF-8 locales. Some of the products provded by Redhat have yet to fully comply with the unicode model. They will in time.
If you need to, you can reset your LANG environment variable to something else, like 'C' for example.
If you make the change, as you upgrade, you will want to change it back.
