setlocale safety

from manual:

Warning: The locale information is maintained per process, not per
thread. If you are running PHP on a multithreaded server api like IIS
or Apache on Windows you may experience sudden changes of locale
settings while a script is running although the script itself never
called setlocale() itself. This happens due to other scripts running
in different threads of the same process at the same time changing the
processwide locale using setlocale().

Am I to assume that using setlocale is safe on *nix/apache/mod_php

I was working with a co-worker the other day to work through the process of formatting numeric values by imbueing C++ iostreams with locales. His program's initialisation code had a call to setlocale("",LC_ALL) which I believe sets up locale information for the C run time library but is not supposed to effect the C++ run time. What we found,...

Last night I had a web site. This morning it was returning nothing. I traced it to a call to setlocale(). It appears that something has happened that means that any call to setlocale completely kills the site, including dumping anything that is in the output buffer.
