Do you mean most Windows and Winelib programs (like notepad) speak
English, except for winecfg? Or do you mean most Linux programs?

Anyway, it works fine for me, but I run 32-bit. Perhaps it's a 64-bit
issue? I've heard about cases where locales don't work properly in
32-bit apps on a 64-bit system... maybe you could check with a 32-bit
"locale" binary or something.
