Package: gnome-panel
Severity: normal

I don't know if this bug comes from gnome-panel itself or from 
libpanel-applet: when applets are started, the LC_ALL environment 
variable, which is unset normally, gets set to a weird string, which 
makes applications fail to set their locale correctly, falling back to 

You can see it using e.g. the command line applet. Just start an xterm 
with it and type "env":

This problem also appears with gnome-swallow-applet or ooqstart-gnome.
