In the end, this isn't really important. What matters is that you have 
to explain lots of users that they need to reconfigure their OS language 
from german to german in order to pick german as language manually 
inside VDR.

Seems to make no difference. Probably because setlocale only accepts the 
full "de_DE at euro" string.

There must be some way how this is supposed to work. Even if my locale 
is set to de_DE at euro and there's no pure de_DE in locale -a, almost all 
distribution' locales are in /usr/share/locale/de/, and they work. There 
must be some mapping from de_DE at euro down to de_DE and de.
