glibc (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

On bionic, some external applications (e.g., Abaqus, flex lexer) abort because of the following error:

loadlocale.c:130: _nl_intern_locale_data: Assertion `cnt < (sizeof (_nl_value_type_LC_TIME) / sizeof (_nl_value_type_LC_TIME[0]))' failed.

By setting LC_ALL=C, everything works fine.

This also appens on debian, as seen in
