This error means that your OpenJDK build contains the translation for your locale, and different tools use the resource bundles to translate different outputs. Looks like nobody validates that the translated output is correct for the various cases since the tests fail on non-US translated locales. I guess in the ideal world that tests should be updated to validate the output for each locale, or probably even better they should check that the output is correct for some specific "key" in the resource bundle.

The current issue is different, it fixes the tests depended on some specific float format and has no dependency on the resource bundles.
