I have tried to reproduce your problem without success. Also I read your
message more carefully and have few notes.

The message above is localized, so the process printing that message
calls setlocale() function.

These messages are not localized, so the process which prints them
either does not call setlocale() or these messages just do not
translated. It looks like the former is right, because numbers in
towgs84 list are dot delimited. In De locale they should be comma

This is localized again.

Actually I do not understand why you have a mix of localized and
non-localized processes here. My own GRASS build (6.3cvs) does not
localized at all, I have EN messages in any locale (probably I should
build GRASS with some option enabled?).

So I am lost here. Markus, do you have any clues on this?
