This code causes SIGFAULT on Ubuntu 8.10:

#include <locale>
using namespace std;

int main()
{
    locale loc(locale("C"), "en_US", locale::monetary);
    use_facet<moneypunct<char> >(loc).grouping();
    return 0;
}

Tested both with native gcc and one builded from svn.
According to gdb, sigfault is caused by strlen while converting c-string to
c++-string when returns from moneypunct<char>::do_grouping().
