You were right on the money. It was indeed locales that was the 
culprit. After some digging around I found out that the C-locale 
was the only locale working on the box. I tried on another box, and voila, 
it works as expected.

Anyhow, I saw you were about to release 2.1 so I took some time to update 
the swedish translations earlier today. Hopefully this will be 
of use to someone else besides myself.

Your wiki-implementation is very nice indeed (and clean!).Thank you for 
such a nice piece of software!
