And what does setlocale(LC_ALL,NULL) return on that system?

It returns "C".

Really?  That's strange.

Sorry, I guess I didn't make myself clear enough.  Every C program
starts with a C locale; what I meant is what does setlocale return
after you do this:

   setlocale (LC_ALL, "");

I expect it to return "English_United States.1251" in all the

Nope, after i call setlocale (LC_ALL, ""), all subsequent calls to setlocale(category, NULL) return "Russian_Russia.1251".

If that's what happens in your case, then the only
problem with gettext is that it doesn't call gl_locale_name, but
instead calls gl_locale_name_posix directly.  I'd say it's a gettext

gl_locale_name() calls gl_locale_name_thread(), which returns the result of setlocale(category, NULL) for all supported categories (i.e. for everything except LC_MESSAGES; it returns NULL for those). If it returns NULL, then the rest of it is the same as what gettext does (posix, then default).
