Ok, now I see it's set correctly if emacs is started from terminal.app
but not when started with Spotlight.

I have created that file and edited with the property list editor.

address@hidden ~: cat .MacOSX/environment.plist 
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN"
"<http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd>"><plist
version="1.0">
<dict>
        <key>LANG</key>
        <string>de_DE.UTF-8</string>
</dict>
</plist>

and rebooted my machine. But still C-h v process-environment shows no
LANG variable when started from spotlight.

Florian
