I'll try and whip something up tonight.

I'm statically linking with my compiled Boost.Locale but I'm using the ICU
DLLs from the ICU site - I'm not compiling my own. These don't have the d
suffix as debug builds aren't redistributable. I believe they are also
compiled with MSVC9 where I'm using MSVC8. Would this cause a problem. I
expected that, if it did, it would fail completely not partially work like

Testing with en_GB and nl.

This didn't make a difference.
