Subject: libc6:amd64: C.UTF-8 locales should be regarded like C w.r.t. $LANGUAGE precedence
Date: Tue, 13 Aug 2013 13:55:12 +0200
Package: libc6
Version: 2.17-92
Severity: normal

Scripts tend to use LC_ALL=C.UTF-8 instead of LC_ALL=C for UTF-8 support
and to behave in a locale-independent manner. However $LANGUAGE is still
taken into account by glibc:

xvii% LANGUAGE=fr_FR LC_ALL=C.UTF-8 cp
cp: opérande de fichier manquant
Saisissez « cp --help » pour plus d'informations.
xvii% LANGUAGE=fr_FR LC_ALL=C cp
cp: missing file operand
Try 'cp --help' for more information.

Both should have output in English.

Glibc should apply the same rules with C.UTF-8 as with C locales.
