    Description

      FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
      1.7.0-b147

      ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
      Windows 7 x64 SP1

      EXTRA RELEVANT SYSTEM CONFIGURATION :
      English version of windows, Swedish locale configured.

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      Locale#getDefault returns the en_US locale with jdk 1.7.0-b147, whereas jdk 1.6.0_27-b07 correctly returns sv_SE.

      This is also evident when running System.getProperties().list(System.out):
      jdk 1.7.0-b147 list the property user.country=US
      whereas 1.6.0_27-b07 properly list the property user.country=SE

      Locale.getDefault(Locale.Category.FORMAT) properly returns sv_SE
      Locale.getDefault(Locale.Category.DISPLAY) erroneously returns en_US

      REGRESSION. Last worked in version 6u26

      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      Set the locale to Swedish.


      REPRODUCIBILITY :
      This bug can be reproduced always.
