I was wrong. Apparently Sylpheed does *not* choose the language
according to the system locale. It chooses the language based on the
Format setting ("the way your computer displays numbers, currencies,
dates and time").

This is, in my opinion, a bug. The point of having a locale *and* a
setting for the date, time and currency format is that you may want to
use a format different from the format associated with a specified

Sylpheed should choose language according to the system locale, and
ideally also have a language override setting in the confiugration menu.
