[ESS] Different results for Sys.getlocale()

Dear list,

I am using ESS 5.8 with Emacs 23.1 and R 2.10.1 on Mac OSX 10.6 and have a problem with the locale. In terminal R and GUI R everything is fine, but in ESS, umlauts (like \"{u}) are not displayed properly (but with a leading quotation mark like "u, which makes ESS display the following text like a string). Sys.locale in Terminal or GUI gets me "en_US.UTF-8/en_US.UTF-8/C/C/en_US.UTF-8/en_US.UTF-8" (GUI) or "de_DE.UTF-8/en_US.UTF-8/C/C/de_DE.UTF-8/de_DE.UTF-8" (terminal), but with ESS, I only get "C".

Has anyone come across that problem and could point me to some solution? Thanks!
