           Summary: Strange check for '/' in user's locale in libxfce4util
           Product: Xfce
           Version: unknown
          Platform: PC (x86_64)
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Medium
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: xfce-bugs at xfce.org
        ReportedBy: enrico.troeger at uvena.de

I was just about writing a German localized version of the Info text in
xfce4-about. While testing I noticed it isn't used at all.

After reading the code to get an idea what's going wrong, I noticed
something strange in xfce_localize_path_internal()
There is a check:

if (G_LIKELY (lang != NULL && strchr (lang, '/') != NULL))

I don't understand why lang should contain a '/'. This is why it
doesn't work for me. My locale is "de_DE.UTF-8".

If I run xfce4-about with
LANG=de_DE.UTF-8/ xfce4-about
it works because the check for the '/' is TRUE and the localized
version is used. But when are '/' are used in locales? I've never seen
this before.
