Comment (by pv):

 Possible fix attached; it's as close as I can do in imitating locale-
 independent fscanf for doubles in ~150 lines. It reads input from a file
 to a buffer (character bu character, essentially matching a regexp
 greedily), and calls PyOS_ascii_strtod on the buffer when it's filled.

 Remaining issues: ignore case when matching 'nan' and 'inf', and accept
 'nan(something)' (like strtod does).
