It does the setenv after forking, so it shouldn't affect messages
getting translated in the parent process:

  else if (pid == 0)
      gchar timeout_str[16];

      close (p[0]);
      close (2);
      dup (p[1]);
      close (p[1]);

      /* produce deterministic output */
      g_setenv ("LANGUAGE", "C", TRUE);
      g_setenv ("LC_ALL", "C", TRUE);
      g_setenv ("LANG", "C", TRUE);

      g_snprintf (timeout_str, sizeof (timeout_str), "%d", TIMEOUT);

      execlp ("wget",
              "wget", "-v", "-e", "server-response=off",
"--progress=dot", "-T", timeout_str,
              uri, "-O", tmpname, NULL);
      _exit (127);
