Are you saying that, in your system, as soon as you start the Python 
interpreter, the locale is tr_TR.UTF-8? Or that your application changes it?

Anyway, I must say that, in either case, uic should probably be locale 
independent. I think it's well possible that an application has the need 
to change the locale and then use uic, and this shouldn't break everything.

I wish the locale setting wasn't process-wide, but we must blame C and 
posix for that :)

Your suggested fix seemed like the best solution.
