In fact, trying a sequence of printf("%f\n", 1.2) instead of a sequence

I understand that isalpha is also provided in the locale parameterized
version isalpha_l but for an user of the standard isalpha the behavior
that I have reported in my previous message seems really surprising!
Do you consider it a feature?
