The comments in GTK+ 2 manual may sched some light on this:

        If you are calling this function because you changed the locale
        after GTK+ is was initialized, then calling this function may
        help a bit.  (Note, however, that changing the locale after GTK+
        is initialized may produce inconsistent results and is not
        really supported.)

Paragraph number two is especially interesting. It looks like we can
forget about runtime changes of the locale.

Ah, yes. I was only reading the documentation for 1.x which is by far not as extensive. But I guessed already that it won't be possible since in 1.x it should be called before gtk_init.

But I'll try to make an option that goes into effect at the next start of gnubg.
