Okay I'll repeat: because everything else is using their own toolkits
while xev and Wine talk directly to X Server using raw X11 protocol.
It means that Wine *depends* on the correctly configured XFree86 and
just can't compensate if XFree86 fails to work in the particular locale.

I can't speak for other applications, since I simply don't know.
