That's because we have no answer: we can't reproduce it (nor something
similar involving a Finnish locale).  But on many other machines
locale-switching does work correctly: the likely problem is in
language-specific Microsoft DLLs.

`R is a collaborative project with many contributors.' and patches
are likely to be accepted.

Remember that R has no staff to offer free advice: it does not even have
an active Windows maintainer.
