Thanks for the info.  I remember - because the case I mention above happened to me, a few

years ago - that finding the origin of the problem took us some time.

But in the bugfix mentioned above, what does "the Locale of the user" mean exactly ?
Is it the locale of the user-id under which Tomcat runs, or the remote user's browser 
preferences ?
(Because in the case of a Windows host, the locale of the user-id running Tomcat can be 
somewhat non-obvious)
