Well join the club - I've fallen into this pit recently :-(

Am I correct in thinking that the reason is that std::cout is constructed
*before* the new locale is 'globalled'?

And so std::cerr needs imbuing too but that fstream and stringstreams
constructed after the std::locale::global("en_US.UTF-8") statement will get
the new locale?
