After a whole morning of debugging and the patch committed earliear 
today, the case where the client application calls


works. However, if I do

KDE_LANG=xtest testapp

Then en_US is assumed to be the locale, and no translated test returns. 
I could not find a way to make .desktop files return translated entries 
that respect KDE_LANG.
