This is not the only qaDevOOo test that assumes en_US in calc. Nearly
all tests aussme it in some way, either in sheet names, separators,
date formatting, ... I hope that there is a way to force this through

It is not the only calc test failing if you build without en_US. I
think we once defined building with en_US as a requirement otherwise
we need to rethink the whole calc test concepts. They all assume that
en_US is present and set. It is otherwise not possible to test correct
import of anything (different formula names, different separator,
different default number formats, ...)

IMHO we should execute all tests in en_US and assume that everyone
builds with en_US.
