On experimental libc, apprently this is default. I do not set it

I use the locale I xant fuck!

Yes it does it break thunderbird and mozilla! I'm not even sure you
tried to reproduce it with the correct package versions...

You do not treat bugs! You do nothing no even tell me what LANG /locales
settings I should use. So instead of helping me you are just saying I'm
an idiot. So do not expect any respect from my side!
If you do not think it is a bug I say it prevent me to work normally and
was introduced by the experimental package version.
Go away from debian maintenance if you do not want to fix bugs!
