the test test_getsetlocale_issue1813 in ./Lib/test/ failed on OpenBSD:

====================================================================== with ('tr_TR', 'ISO8859-9')
ERROR: test_getsetlocale_issue1813 (__main__.TestMiscellaneous)
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./Lib/test/", line 515, in test_getsetlocale_issue1813

locale.Error: unsupported locale setting

FAILED (errors=1, skipped=5)

The first setlocale(locale.LC_CTYPE, 'tr_TR') works fine, but loc = locale.getlocale(locale.LC_CTYPE) then locale.setlocale(locale.LC_CTYPE, loc) does not work.

Attached is a patch to skip the second part if it does not work, is it correct?
