NEdit: Xlib: locale C not supported

I had a hell of a time configuring my video in X and was about to post on it before I finally got it fixed. Now my reserves are low and I'm having a hell of a time with NEdit. I've never used it and don't even know if I care to, but I do want to know what's wrong. I've read man pages that don't make a whole lot of sense to me and I'm not trying to read Chinese or run NEdit on Cygwin (which is mostly what all my web searches turned up). The only locale environment variable I can see that's set is LC_ALL=C which I changed to =en_US and even =en_GB for the heck of it. I got a slightly different message, telling me those weren't supported by my C library and that it was going to try C - and then, naturally, the same damn error message. I've seen that I can download statically linked binaries or try downloading some locale data (?) but I don't want to be filling up my system with stuff I don't need for a program I may not want. NEdit is the only app I've noticed that does this. Is this just a bug with the app? Or, if not, any ideas on how I could fix it?

Oh, and this happens under XFCE, IceWm and blackbox, of course. Whether the command's issued from an xterm or from an XFCE menu.

Nope, that didn't do it.

Doesn't matter now, I guess. It seems I didn't fix the video after all, as my monitor's just gone nuts. Instead of 800x600 res I've got about 900x700 and it's nicely bent outwards at the corners. Ah well - it was busted crap when I got it, anyway.

Um - as far as the other problem, I said NEdit was the only thing that did it and it's true that it's the only one that won't run but certain other apps give me similar type warnings - from gtk in those cases, mostly. Unfortunately, I didn't pay enough attention to get specifics.

Between my crap hardware and my software problems, I think I'm just going to take a break for awhile.
