this is not correct fix. Try running e.g.

LANG=ru_RU emacs -q -l time-patched.el -eval '(setq display-time-day-and-date 
t)' -f display-time

You will see \214's before each letter. The same (bad) behavior applies
when you use cs_CZ. Without that patch (i.e.) in original Emacs it is

BTW - with original 21.1 after running

LANG=zh_CN emacs -q -eval '(setq display-time-day-and-date t)' -f display-time

it displays Chinese (well, I hope Chinese) characters in the mode-line. My
tests were done on SuSE Linux 7.3.
