I write my own ftp-server with the perl-module Net::FTPServer under Linux.
Because of the env-vars LC_CTYPE="de_DE", the module produced a
directory-listing with the german month-names ("Mai" instead of "May"). This
listings let Firefox crash!!!

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Net::FTPServer under an unix-system. (lib-netftpserver-perl with debian)
2. Start with 'LC_CTPYE="de_DE"' set.
3. Connect to this server
4. Firefox crash!

Actual Results:  
Firefox don't resonse on link-click or similar, changing tabs do, but nothing
else. Closing Firefox, closes the window but don't stop the process!

Expected Results:  
Show an error message, or interpret the other month-names in the ftp-listing
