  The reason seems to be that gpg.c calls init_common_subsystems()
  before initializing the locale via i18n_init() or a setlocale()
  call. Therefore detects as ANSI_X3.4-1968 (i.e us-ascii) and uses
  iso-8859-1 as fallback.

This should be fixed in 2.0.10:

	* gpg.c (main): Call i18n_init before init_common_subsystems.

Same also fixed for the other tools.
