Good guess, but wrong ;o) Actually, the problem is in Sys.getlocale()
Recent versions of R have this in its help...
Note that the ‘LANGUAGE’ environment variable has precedence over
‘"LC_MESSAGES"’ in selecting the language for message translation
on most R platforms.
However, the function itself just ignores LANGUAGE. I searched bugzilla,
but did not find anything related to LANGUAGE or Sys.getlocale()
I guess this is a feature :o)
