I have noticed that the language setting of en_US.UTF-8 seems to cause
other problems such as running man when sshed into a machine with this

I have been changing it back to plain en_US for a while now... I
normally use debian but one of my clients wanted RedHat.

Any comments on advantages of UTF-8 any why anyone would want to use it?
