No. Sorry, I just edited directly in the mail, when answering... but was
apparently too fast (or I just didn't read it carefully before sending it).
If can assure you I had (the effect of):
(setq system-time-locale "en_US.utf8")
in my .emacs.
The real lines in my .emacs were:
;; specify your character-set locale
(setenv "LANG" "en_US.utf8")
;; system locale to use for formatting time values (e.g., timestamps in
;; Org mode files)
(setq system-time-locale (getenv "LANG"))
Why setting LANG? Because that environment variable doesn't exist on Windows,
and was needed to quiet SVN (stop reporting warnings).

Case still open (for understanding it fully, on my side: why setting it early
in my .emacs file is different than setting it afterward).
