Subject: vcs_info causing LC_MESSAGES to be unset
Date: Mon, 7 Nov 2022 15:48:20 -0600	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <CAHM1PU0SGkRc-vLCDqWXhyusyHQ+BmME3gtdLs-gVfAJ8e173g@mail.gmail.com> (raw)

In my zshrc I have the following (among other things):

setopt prompt_subst
autoload -U vcs_info

Before this is executed, `locale` reports my `LC_MESSAGES` to be the
same value as my `LANG`, "en_us.UTF-8". After the first time the
function is called, `LC_MESSAGES` is set to an empty string. I notice
in the function, `LC_MESSAGES` is declared as local for autoexport and
then set to "C".

Why would this be causing it to be an empty string in my environment?
It seems wrong that it should be changing those values for anything
outside of whatever is using it within `vcs_info`.
