Sounds like a locale problem in that particular NetBSD, I'm afraid.
Smells like memory (malloc arena?) corruption. (NetBSD wouldn't be
alone: also old Solaris (and IRIX, IIRC?) got severe indigestion if
one simply walked through the available locales and called setlocale()
on all of them-- and that's exactly what locale.t is doing.)
