Subject: bug#17903: Man-softhyphen-to-minus error when current-language-environment is shorter than 6 characters

My current-language-environment is "UTF-8" and every time I do M-x man to get a new manpage, I get the error

Man-softhyphen-to-minus: Args out of range: "UTF-8", 0, 6

Here's a patch (although this is sent with gmail - don't ask - and it might be mangled beyond recognition):
