 Hi! Problem solved!!
 Installed package emul/suse_locale
 This is a collection of locales, I'd have no idea actually, but this 
 package might have done something with the no_NO.ISO8859-1 locale. Do 
 not misspell ISO8859-1 as ISO8859_1, it won't do anything, but no 
 warning is fired by java, nor locale command.
 Enter at command prompt:
 export LANG=no_NO.ISO8859-1
 Thereafter, java should be able to handle all the scandinavian character 
 there is, because now java's fed with ISO8859-1 characters instead of 
 If the locale is set to an value not in the list, mozilla complains 
 "locale not supported by C library" upon invocal.
 It took two years and some days, but WE DID IT!
 Cincerely, Sigmund
