Um. Wow.

For ease of discussion, here's the only use of setenv(), which is  
indeed in adiumPurpleCoreUiInit():

	const char *preferredLocale = [[[[NSBundle bundleForClass: 
[SLPurpleCocoaAdapter class]] preferredLocalizations] objectAtIndex:0]  
UTF8String];
	//We should be able to just do setlocale()... but it always returns  
NULL, which indicates failure
	/* setlocale(LC_MESSAGES, preferredLocale); */

	//So we'll set the environment variable for this process, which does  
work
	setenv("LC_ALL", preferredLocale, /* overwrite? */ 1);
	setenv("LC_MESSAGES", preferredLocale, /* overwrite? */ 1);

I have no idea how setenv() could hang.
