[GE users] Strange behaviour of environment variables

    [ The following text is in the "iso-8859-1" character set. ]
    [ Your display is set for the "ISO-8859-10" character set.  ]
    [ Some special characters may be displayed incorrectly. ]

Man, I searched high a low and cannot find out where
that env-variable is being set. And, Why did restarting the
execd on one host change the behaviour on that host?
It remains a mystery to me.

No, definitely not. It must be well hidden in one of your shell profile
files.

Check /etc/*sh* /etc/.*sh* and all files which are sourced by these files
(samep of course applies for the dot files in the home directory.
