I don't remember exactly from where I picked the change (I think it was
from gdm), but indeed, there's definitely a mistake.
/etc/default/locale should be only added, not replace completely the
thing. As far as I can tell, other pam config file use something like:

session       required   pam_env.so readenv=1
session       required   pam_env.so readenv=1 envfile=/etc/default/locale   

Can you check that it works for you and report back?
