I am not sure whether this is a good solution.  There must have been a
reason why the initialization has been splitted up.  Calling i18n_init
earlier might not be a good idea.  Despite the fact that it would fix a
problem printing a non-translated diagnostic in case a wrong libgcrypt
is used.  Needs to be investigated.

A not so intrusive change would be to do an extra call to setlocale
earlier (best in set_native_charset()).



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Auschnahme regelt ein Bundeschgesetz.
