[opensuse-support] "bad" locale -> bad/no box characters
These are from 42.3 installations. On both, /etc/sysconfig/language is
identical,
and 'DroidSansMono.ttf: "Droid Sans Mono" "Regular"' results from 'fc-match
monospace'.
These show good vs. bad box drawing characters in Konsole3:
Good: http://fm.no-ip.com/SS/Suse/lc423goodP5BSE.jpg
Bad http://fm.no-ip.com/SS/Suse/lc423bad00srv.jpg

Locale on the good host, all POSIX except CTYPE and ALL, same in Konsole3 as in
XTerm:
# locale
LANG=POSIX
LC_CTYPE=en_US.UTF-8
LC_NUMERIC="POSIX"
LC_TIME="POSIX"
LC_COLLATE="POSIX"
LC_MONETARY="POSIX"
LC_MESSAGES="POSIX"
LC_PAPER="POSIX"
LC_NAME="POSIX"
LC_ADDRESS="POSIX"
LC_TELEPHONE="POSIX"
LC_MEASUREMENT="POSIX"
LC_IDENTIFICATION="POSIX"
LC_ALL=

On the bad host, all en_US.UTF-8 except LANG, and XTerm is OK, but Konsole is
not:
LANG=POSIX
LC_CTYPE="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_NUMERIC="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_TIME="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_COLLATE="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_MONETARY="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_MESSAGES="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_PAPER="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_NAME="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_ADDRESS="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_TELEPHONE="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_MEASUREMENT="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_IDENTIFICATION="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_ALL=en_US.UTF-8

The difference between good and bad has root in .bashrc:

export LC_ALL=en_US.UTF-8

The question is, why does Xterm get box characters right, but Konsole not. Bug?
