xgnokii is checking if you are using an unsupported locale but the check works 
only if your current locale name has a dot in it (eg. en_US.UTF8)

use this command as a workaround (it will use English messages):
LC_MESSAGES=en_US.UTF8.; xgnokii &
(in fact LC_MESSAGES=. would be enough)

Look at line 2362 of xgnokii.c in the CVS:
        /* we have set en_US.UTF8 locale that is not supported by xgnokii */
        if (!LocaleHelpExists(xgnokiiConfig.help_locale)) {
                char *pos = strchr(xgnokiiConfig.locale, '.');

here after line 2365 it should do something like
                if (!pos) {
                        xgnokiiConfig.help_locale = g_strdup("en_US");
