Locale: why does Gnumeric think I'm an American?!

My dates and currencies in Gnumeric all come out American style. My dates are back to front and everything is in dollars. I need a British locale.

What do I have to do to change this?

I'm using Gnumeric 1.4.3 on Linux 2.6, Fedora 4.

I'm pretty sure when I installed I told Fedora I was in the UK (several times, actually, time zone, keyboard, language...). There doesn't seem to be any applet in Fedora or Gnome to change my locale settings, so what do I do? Where does Gnumeric take the hint from? Please don't tell me it's hardcoded to be American.

Do I need to set some environment variables or something? How come Fedora didn't do that? What will happen to my existing Gnumeric files? Will they change to meet my new locale?

What do I need to do?
