When defining these two variables manually on cmd line, the
Japanese translation comes up (working around the other
g.gui problems): the word "Help" is already translated.

It does not come up when starting the GUI from the
Windows menu (so, also here the variables are undefined).

Summary: these two variables are never defined in the
.bat files. Where should it go? Especially: how? I guess
that the current locale info needs to be fetched somehow
to define LANG/LC_MESSAGES properly.
