libghttp bug

Hello there,

i found a bug in libghttp-1.0.9 that may not appear to 
many of you. Though,as many applications use it, for example
on my home computer : gnome-media-1.2.3, gtkhtml-1.0.1,
enlightenment-0.16.5, gnome-applets-,gquotes-0.3.4,
gnorpm-0.96, grip-2.98.6, this bug is annoying.

It seems that the string containing the HTTP request is 
sensible to the LANG environment variable, and the 
"HTTP 1.1" substring becomes "HTTP 1,1" in environments
like LANG=fr where LC_NUMERIC=fr_FR (where , is used instead
of . in decimal numbers).
So, with FR env, i got
"GET /index.html HTTP/1,1" 400 401 "-" "-"
where as running the application in a US env makes the correct 
request :
"GET /index.html HTTP/1.1" 200 1084 "-" "libghttp/1.0"

I got aware of this with Apache 1.3.26 that returns an HTTP error
code 400 for such requests.

As i found nothing in the mail archive of gnome-devel, i am working 
on a patch but i would appreciate comments on this.

Please, can you Cc: your response to me as i will not be reading 
the list next week.
