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).

Best regards,
