Changes (by rkern):

  * summary:  Traceback when imported after gtk => Tracebacks in Turkish
              locales

Comment:

 A better replication of the problem without GTK:

 {{{

 $ LANG=tr_TR.UTF-8 python -c "import
 locale;locale.setlocale(locale.LC_ALL, '');print repr('VOID'.lower())"
 'voId'
 }}}

 The problem may exist in buggy versions of glibc, as this is (apparently)
 not even the correct result in the Turkish locale. Nonetheless, the
 results of {{{str.lower()}}} is documented to be locale-dependent, so we
 should not rely on English rules for internal strings like 'VOID' here.
