Yes, the uclibc people still don't seem to have fixed that. I would
recommend that you don't use the 'use pregenerated locale data'

Have you tried if the locales from the old 030818 tarball actually work?

 Berns> The additional items "Purge unwanted locale data" and "Locales

 Berns> data" is activated or ?

No, actually they should only appear if you use an internal BR
toolchain and have locale enabled. Pregenerated or not shouldn't
