Reasonable solution. Actually, I thougth that _M_initialize_moneypunct had
already implemented in such way.
As for "we didn't notice the issue much earlier" - it is strange, but in many
other cases locale, created with this constructor, behaves correctly(at least,
does not cause program to abort and remains internal properties). And this case
crashes program not on every system.
