> Default locale and default charset has immediate effect on how strings are encoded and
handles - e.g. via {{String.toLowerCase()}} or {{new String(byte[])}}.
> Problems with different default locales + charsets don't become obvious for US and most
European regional settings. But some regional OS settings will cause severe errors. Example:
{{"BILLY".toLowerCase()}} returns {{bılly}} with Locale tr_TR (take a look at the second
letter - it's an i without the dot).

> It's not a problem I'm currently facing, but it could become a problem for some users.
A quick fix could be to set default locale and charset in the start scripts - maybe that's
all we need.
