I'm sure other terminal emulators do the same]. The problem here is
that Cocoa apps and terminal programs have different ways of deciding
which locale to use. I'm not sure exactly what to do about this (if I
knew how Terminal.app decides on which locale to use I could perhaps
forcibly set it when starting MacVim.app...).
The fact that the LANG setting is even picked up by MacVim is because
of a "hack" where Vim processes are run in a "login shell". What I'm
trying to say is that locale stuff is a bit of a mess...don't expect
this to be "fixed" any time soon. :-(
