Mathematica won't run if LANG var is set to pt_BR

Hello,

I have installed Mathematica in Linux (Ubuntu Linux 5.04 - essentially
Debian) and works OK, as long as my LANG environment variable is set to 'C'
(which means 'no specific language') or 'US'.

But I want to use the GNOME window manager in Portuguese, and this,
"automagically" sets the LANG variable to pt_BR (which means 'Brazilian
Portuguese'). When this is set, Mathematica will not run, it will error at
startup with "An illegal right-hand side value was specified for the cell
style option "FontColor"".

Anybody knows how to fix this problem?

I use Mathematica 5.0.

Thanks,
Renan
