This is a quote from Joakim which might help you:

"That is most likely because the locale you're using is not installed on
the system. I suppose you're trying with es_MX? When I checked, I saw
that that locale isn't present on my system (and thus most likely not on
yours), strangely enough. Try with es_ES.ISO8859-1 instead, allthough i
would guess it is less than ideal regarding currency, etc.

To clarify, I have no such problems, the only programs that
internationalisation won't work for are the xfce4 programs."
