Works for me (10.5.3):

marigold:~ arno$ uname -srv
Darwin 9.3.0 Darwin Kernel Version 9.3.0: Fri May 23 00:49:16 PDT 2008; root:xnu-1228.5.18~1/RELEASE_I386
marigold:~ arno$ python -c "import locale; print locale.getdefaultlocale()"
('en_GB', 'UTF8')

Do you have an environment variable set who is named
either LANG or starts with LC_?

Actually, yes:

LC_CTYPE=UTF-8

where is it coming from? This is basically on a clean new machine...
who might be setting it? It is coming from a program elsewhere on the
system? How should python code deal with this?

Thanks! mario

There are many possible places. grep in your Library, as a starting
point. As on Macintosh lists.

Python should do what it does: just crash. This setting is not supported.
