What I've found is that setting LANG is not enough; in my own tests with

	LANG=es mono foo.exe

is ignored, but

	LANGUAGE=es mono foo.exe

works as desired (using the `es' message catalog).  I don't know why
this is the case.

Consequently, I would suggest setting the LANGUAGE environment variable
and see if that works; it did for my test app.
