Just to confirm:
(setq system-time-locale (getenv "en_US.utf8"))
in my .emacs is not working for me: I get French timestamps (I mean: weekday
abbreviations) in Org (on `C-c .', for example).
Setting it back, on-the-fly (with `C-x C-e') to "C" works: I get English
Though, setting it back once again to "en_US.utf8" works as well: I now still
get English timestamps!?
That seems to indicate that setting that var before Org or after Org doesn't
provide me with the same view. I say Org, but maybe it's before or after
another one. Should be investigated, but not that clear anymore...

(and Cygwin for the subshell, but Emacs is not launched from it).
