    Regarding setlocale. I talking from my memory. I do not have the results in
    from of me, then I may not be complete accurate.

    The profile that use under Windows NT reports that we leak like the Titanic in
    setlocale calls. It seems that setlocale allocates the string that returns and
    it has to be free'd in some situations. I have not found this in the setlocale
    documentation and I have not investaged this any deeper. We use setlocale
    continually when doing the dimension conversion at ut_units.cpp.
