           Summary: locale specified in LANG is not respected in wine 0.9.29
           Product: Wine
           Version: 0.9.29.
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: wine-resources
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
        ReportedBy: yaohan.chen at gmail.com

This problem happens to be in wine 0.9.29 packages for Ubuntu Edgy in 
wine.budgetdedicated.com and ubuntu backports. It does not happen in wine 

When I specify a different locale for wine, e.g. LANG=ja_JP wine program.exe, 
the specified locale is not respected. For example, with notepad.exe included 
in wine, the UI should have be shown in Japanese, but it does not. In another 
program, which has Japanese UI encoded in Shift_JIS, I normally need to use 
LANG=ja_JP to have (at least parts of) it display correctly, but now even with 
LANG=ja_JP, wine tries to decode the text using its default encoding, 
resulting in unreadable code.
