Configuring the locale in application code isn't necessary in general. The tutorial works for me without this, and I've run Django in a variety of environment without needing it.

Since you didn't provide any information on what happened before you added this to your settings, I cannot analyze anything, let alone identify a bug in Django.

All I can say is that locale belongs in system configuration rather than in application code.

I suggest using Django's support channels, and if necessary, to reopen this ticket with more information — at least the full traceback and the output of locale.

Sorry I did something wrong. Not a bug.
