> Do you have a valid locale set in your environment?  Try "export LC_ALL=C"

OMG, that looks like it.

After 2 years, I think I can start to use C&P again!  I think I'm
going to cry, thank you!

I just need to make sure my environment set up correctly.  I don't
know anything about localization (I'm American  :-), but I will
certainly do that work.

But I would expect this to come up again and again with other
Linux-dummies like me.  Whatever the different path of code inside the
VM is taken on account of this Environment variable not being set; is
there any way to have C&P follow the default expected behavior even if
LC_ALL is not set?
