Follow-up Comment #9:

We will not implement that gettext() notices changes of the locale, without an
override of setlocale via libintl_setlocale.

The reason is simply performance: going through setlocale(LC_MESSAGES,NULL)
for every gettext() call would be prohibitively expensive.

We shall document the requirement to use this override from <libintl.h> in bug
