No. I thought it would. My happiness lasted for half minute, but then I was
disappointed to see that it doesn't fix it. :-( That code segment is not
executed when I start vte or gnome-terminal.

That's why I sent two separate mails, one about this "I don't know what it
fixes" fix :), and another one with my (yet unsolved) "LANG=hu_HU vte"
