Re: base-files 4.0-9: LANG is set to the system default, why not the user selection?

Hmmm, ok, that doesn't completely match what I'm seeing in my $HOME, my
.bash_profile *looks* (who am I to tell, it's attached) unmodified from
4.0-6, so just a quick question, what postinstall script is responsible
for moving the updated skel files into $HOME?  I couldn't find any, but
admittedly didn't spend much time looking...
