Ok, I think I finally figured out why when
logging into Gnome, the default LANG="C"
When the GDM login screen appears, there is
no mention of Language / Session options until
AFTER you select or manually enter the user name.

WTH - WHY?
Obviously when I selected Language to be in my
case English (USA), then entered my password,
my session is now using English (USA) locale.
This mechanism seems to have changed after F9
since the Language / Session option is shown regardless
if a username has been selected or not!?!?
