[TxMt] PyMate locale not set correctly?

This Python code:

     #!/usr/bin/env python
     # encoding: utf-8

     import sys
     import os
     import locale

     def main():
         print locale.setlocale(locale.LC_ALL, '')
         print locale.format("%d", 282929992, grouping=True)

     if __name__ == '__main__':

produces the expected result when run under Python 2.5.2 from bash  
shell on Mac OS X:


and this unexpected result when run from PyMate:
	PyMate r8111 running Python 2.5.2 (/usr/bin/env python) >>> loc.py

Notice that the integer is formatted into comma-separated groups when  
run from the shell, but not when run from PyMate.

Changing this line:

         print locale.setlocale(locale.LC_ALL, '')

to this:

         print locale.setlocale(locale.LC_ALL, 'en_US.UTF-8')

gives the expected results in PyMate.
