Isn't that odd, though? The num_put test does fail, even if not
consistently, and the numpunct one fails pretty much at the drop
of a hat. I don't think they fail because of a bug in the facets
themselves but rather in the locale cache. And if numpunct were
buggy, that should affect both num_put and num_get. So why does
the num_get test never fail? Any ideas?
