Ok, I think I finally figured out why when
logging into Gnome, the default LANG="C"
was set!

When the GDM login screen appears, there is
no mention of Language / Session options until
AFTER you select or manually enter the user name.

Looking at the DEFAULT Language setting, it
says: "Unspecified"

WTH - WHY?

Obviously when I selected Language to be in my
case English (USA), then entered my password,
my session is now using English (USA) locale.

ALSO:

This mechanism seems to have changed after F9
since the Language / Session option is shown regardless
if a username has been selected or not!?!?

Ugh.
