So there a way to force wine to use codepage and ignore LC_* LANG etc. ? Where can i find it?

Might it all because wine looks for UTF-8 and ignores utf8? 
I don't know if it has something in common but I found that glibc converts UTF-8 to utf8, and programs should use its functions to get locale and charsets not system vars.
