Since this bug has been reported, locale.localeconv() has been fixed in bpo-31900 to temporarily set LC_CTYPE to LC_NUMERIC to decode numeric fields of localeconv() from the proper encoding. I guess that a similar fix can be applied to locale.nl_langinfo(): set LC_CTYPE to LC_NUMERIC if the parameter is a numeric field.

I only knew locale.nl_langinfo(locale.CODESET). I didn't know that this function accepted other arguments :-)

I even wrote an article about these locale bugs :-)

See also bpo-35697: "decimal: formatter error if LC_NUMERIC uses a different encoding than LC_CTYPE".
