Launching in Swedish triggers exception

Issue #309 resolved

I've tried this on two different Arch machines with the same result.

My default $LANG is "sv_SE.UTF-8".

Launching the game with this gives an instant crash.

Full log attached.

Prefixing with env LANG="sv" or env LANG="sv_SE" gives:

LanguageStorm: Unable to obtain system locale, falling back to default
LanguageStorm: Default language is British English (en_GB).

The game runs fine in English so I'm not putting this as critical now.

I can't tell what happens on Windows because I can't get debug output, but the game always launches in English even though Swedish is the only available interface language.
