Yes, doesn't happen with either LANG=da_DK or LANG=nl_NL. Maybe Ulrich 
Drepper knows? Oh, by the way:

$ locale

LANG=de_DE at euro
LC_NUMERIC="de_DE at euro"

$ ./is

scanned value is 13.000000
printf gives 13.200000
c++ iostreams says 13.2

$ export LC_NUMERIC=de_DE at euro
$ ./is

LC_NUMERIC=de_DE at euro
[same output as above]

So it seems that neither me nor ardour get to see the right value with 
getenv ("LC_NUMERIC").
