When checking an R package of mine, I get

* checking R files for syntax errors ... WARNING
Warning in Sys.setlocale("LC_CTYPE", "en_US") :
   OS reports request to set locale to "en_US" cannot be honored

'Sys.setlocale' is not used in any of my R functions. What should I do 
to fix the Warning? I have never seen this before.

My locale is "sv_SE", on ubuntu 9.04
