+- Issue #7419: setlocale() could crash the interpreter on Windows when called
+  with invalid values.
 - Issue #3382: 'F' formatting for float and complex now convert the
   result to upper case. This only affects 'inf' and 'nan', since 'f'
   no longer converts to 'g' for large values.
 - Remove switch from "%f" formatting to "%g" formatting for floats
   larger than 1e50 in absolute value.
