I notice that you are just querying os:getenv("LC_CYTPE").
But it's a little more complicated. To determine the value
of an LC_xxxx property:
(1) First check LC_ALL. If that's set, use it. Otherwise,
(2) next check LC_xxxx. If that's set, use it. Otherwise,
(3) next check LANG. If that's set, use it. Otherwise,
(4) use the default C locale.
While LC_CTYPE is set the same in both your examples,
it's possible that LC_ALL might be set differently.
sh% export LC_CTYPE=en_NZ.UTF-8 LC_ALL=en_NZ.ISO8859-1
