Also: there is sometimes a problem under windows with getting locale
information. I noticed this when I got warning messages about ::lang
being undefined in at the beginning of load_translations if
I invoked from the command-line on a non-localized windows

Since getting locale information is one of the murkiest parts of
the windows code, I decided just to add a test whether ::lang was
defined and bail out of load_translations if it was not.

I plan to investigate this after release.
