[Pkg-shadow-devel] Bug#369391: login: should /etc/pam.d/su read /etc/default/locale?

Package: login
Version: 1:4.0.15-10
Severity: normal


since the LC_* settings were moved from /etc/environment to
/etc/default/locale, they are missing in 'su -' sessions.
Perhaps it should be configured similar to /etc/pam.d/login?
