Eep, don't do that!

Facets are reference-counted. The locale adds a reference when you add
the facet, and takes it away when it is destructed. When the count drops
to zero, it tries to delete the facet.

Either allocate the facet with new and pass it to the locale, or pass 1
to its constructor so that the reference counter is initialized at 1 and
never drops to zero.
