Hi Samuel,
I can't reproduce that. What distro and ls version are you using?

This is what I get with the latest coreutils on Fedora 8:

$ LC_ALL=fr_FR.utf8 TIME_STYLE=+"%b %e %H:%M" ./ls -l -h ls.c nl.c
-rw-rw-r-- 1 padraig padraig 124K mar  6 22:47 ls.c
-rw-rw-r-- 1 padraig padraig  15K fév 25 09:46 nl.c

Note that I get shorter abmon values, and also the alignment is fine?

Note I needed to specify TIME_STYLE just for that test
because I hadn't installed the translations to the appropriate place.

All my french locales have the shorter abbreviations BTW?
$ locale -a | grep ^fr.*utf8 | while read LANG; do echo -n $(locale abmon); 
echo " $LANG"; done
