You could try setting LANG=ENG before starting Emacs, but I don't think it
will help, because if I set LANG=CSY before starting Emacs then I get the
same locale values as above, but ls-lisp still presents dates in the
standard English way.  However, I'm running a precompiled Emacs binary
compiled with MSVC, namely

In GNU Emacs 21.3.1 (i386-msvc-nt5.1.2600)
 of 2003-03-28 on buffy
configured using `configure --with-msvc (12.00)'

So I would guess that the behaviour you are seeing is caused by the mingw
libraries that you are using.  If it's a bug then it would appear to be a
bug in mingw rather than Emacs.

There is probably a later version of mingw available, so you could try
rebuilding with that.  Alternatively, you should be able to find the
precompiled binaries that I'm running on a GNU mirror somewhere.
