You guessed right ;)

> Commit ecefa40c081a0b6677e946603d553d9382f9b9ca should fix that and the locale should be 'nl-NL'. There may be other places though that previously relied on the implicit fallback whenever

Yes, that makes the locale look OK.
Unfortunately, calling setLocale() still produces a crash when locale is set to nl-NL (which it doesn't when locale is en-US); soffice.bin has an invalid pointer in munmap_chunk().

It makes me wonder if this [mess] may have been the reason why long ago the add-in functions were excluded when changing the formula language...
And, consequently, if I shouldn't leave it with https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/#/c/6032/ ?
