But isn't the default locale based on the user's main language?

It's hard for me to test this anyway, since even when I set my main languge to something other than english it gives me 3.14
I'll keep trying...

+stringWithFormat: and -initWithFormat: in NSString
and NSScanner(unless explicitely set) should be using default locale, not the user's current locale.

[NSString stringWithFormat: @"%f",3.14]; should always
return 3.14, yet, with LANG=sv_SE, it returns 3,14
